This text challenges binary perceptions of space and explores the possibilities afforded by a hybrid learning space at the intersection of physical, virtual, formal and informal spaces. It examines how new technologies and modes of delivery, including media-enhanced learning and open education, present opportunities as well as challenges. Chapters are supported by a wealth of case studies which illustrate academic innovation in diverse learning spaces and demonstrate how it can be used to inspire learners and promote student engagement.

Packed with practical guidance and questions for reflection and discussion, this thought-provoking and timely guide is an essential resource for anyone involved in improving the student learning experience.

“This is a good book for people interested in how space can be used and conceived of within learning. It would be useful as an overview for people new to this subject, and its organisation would make it easy for ‘dippers’ to just pick out the chapters they are particularly interested in. … easy to read them individually and then go into more depth regarding the context that is particularly interesting.” (Alke Gröppel-Wegener, Innovative Practice in Higher Education, Vol. 03 (3), April, 2019)|This is a thoughtful and practical companion to the journey that every institution is undertaking to respond to the demands of a modern higher education experience.’ – Peter Bryant, Head of Learning Technology and Innovation, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
This rich exploration of the complex interplay between learning and space provides inspiration for reshaping the core of higher education in complex times. – David White, Head of Digital Learning, University of the Arts, UK
