School and University Learning Environment Design
The design of a learning environment is intimately connected with the quality of education that students receive. Innovative Learning Environments (ILEs) are classroom or university learning environments where teachers or lecturers get the maximum amount of choice about what they teach and how they teach it. According to Professor Immes from the University of Melbourne, Seventy five per cent of classrooms in Australian schools are classrooms where all desks face the front, where teachers stand and talk at the students, and students write things down. In the 21st century these classrooms don’t work.“A lot of money is spent on school infrastructure but designs are not always based on the best evidence,” he says.
