  2. How do people interact with the architectural and technological infrastructure and with each other in innovative learning spaces on an everyday basis?
    • How do everyday interactions compare with those envisioned by the designers and managers of these spaces?
    • How do we account for the differences between actual and anticipated use of the spaces?
    • How can spaces be designed or recover from breakdowns so that actual and anticipated use (re) align?

  3. The authors focus on the strategies employed in the recent renovation of the William Johnston Building at Florida State University, in which the historical exterior was preserved, while the interiors were adapted to new functions as classrooms, study centers, and common spaces with intentionally undefined purposes. The building’s various use capacities, together with the flexibility of its interior environments, makes it a building of requirement. The paper reveals how the building’s historical interior layouts and architectural elements defined the approach to realizing a postmodern and future-oriented building while fostering new encounters and forming new user familiarities, thereby contributing to the evolution of the structure as living history.

  5. Yesterday, a group of Werklund graduate students and their professor, many of whom had never programmed before, decided to “hold” their regular class at DigiPlay. And as is possible in spaces like this, with very little help from me or their professor, they dove deep into the simulations, hacked the code, challenged each other (a “Flock Off”, one student said). Amid laughter and banter, they engaged in some of the most intricate discourse about the mathematics of complex systems that I have heard in a while. But the conversation I heard was also about their lives, and their experiences as teachers and professionals: the flocking “boids” not only represented swarms of birds and fish, but also stood in as models of “peer pressure” and “influence networks”.
    This is the kind of learning that is only possible at spaces like this — learning with friends, and learning about the unknown, unscripted — through deliberations, collaboration and eventually, inventions.

  6. The emergence of active learning classrooms (ALCs) on university campuses introduces a need for university teachers to have knowledge of the pedagogical use of physical space. We consider expanding two well-known frameworks for teacher knowledge. Pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) describes teacher knowledge about teaching discipline-specific content. Technological, pedagogical, and content knowledge (TPACK) recognizes digital technology as part of the knowledge base. With increased attention on learning spaces, we propose redefining technology to include non-digital technologies, (e.g. furniture, whiteboards). Further, we add “environment” to the knowledge base to address rhetorical communications from both the physical space and the classroom climate.

  7. Although active learning classrooms are designed to support innovative teaching and learning practices, classroom success requires sustained and intentional faculty development.
    The University of Iowa and Indiana University each launched active learning classroom initiatives centered on faculty development.
    These programs not only benefit individual instructors and their students, they are changing the pedagogy and culture at both universities in powerful and enduring ways.
    The two cases offer many crucial findings about the design of both active learning spaces and faculty development programs to support success in and beyond individual courses and disciplines.
