The Impact of New Collaborative Learning Spaces on Tertiary Teacher Practice
Haines, Karen; Maurice-Takerei, Lisa
Journal of Learning Spaces, v8 n2 p12-24 2019
Institutions may invest heavily into building and equipping new learning teaching spaces with the intention of encouraging active and collaborative learning to occur. However, there may not be a concomitant shift in teachers' existing pedagogical practices. This qualitative study examined the perspectives of thirty-two tertiary teachers across a range of disciplines at a single institution. The findings suggest that working in new collaborative learning spaces challenged many participants to make changes to their existing practices that moved them along a possible continuum to be more facilitative and learner-centered in their approach.
