Scaling up Active Learning in Charles Sturt University’s Learning Spaces

Philip Hua, Charles Sturt University, Australia


Charles Sturt University provides learning spaces that stimulate active learning by aligning spaces, pedagogy, technologies, furniture, and strategy. At its core this strategy comes down to marrying digital and physical means to educational ends. The visual materials presented here display award-winning learning spaces on some of CSU’s eight campuses in New South Wales along with reflections on how effective these spaces have proven to be. They explore how people are creatively using blended — physical and digital — spaces, and the optimal design and layout of such spaces.
