Overview

The financial cost of new learning spaces means that it is crucial for schools to get it right the first time around. A tested and optimised process for planning, implementing and measuring the outcomes of new learning spaces is crucial, not only to justify the cost, but to ensure that schools remain agile to the changing education environment.

This conference will provide practical strategies for schools to enhance their physical spaces at all stages of the learning space design journey, from planning to pedagogy.

Hear best practice, evidence based research and case studies from leading schools, government agencies and architectural firms to ensure the success of your new learning spaces.
