Learning Connections 2019: Spaces, People, Practice
The Learning Connections Conference will take place in University College Cork on 6 December 2019. This conference will bring together learners, teachers, architects, designers and all who support teaching, from across third level institutions: from universities; institutes of technology; community; industry; government agencies; policy makers; and regulators, under the frame of learning connections. The conference is underpinned by the following research questions:
- How can we connect across disciplinary boundaries, and break down barriers between academia, administration, community and industry to strive for optimal student learning in Third Level Institutions?
- How can learning in different spaces – physical, active, virtual, off campus, enable all students, as global citizens, to think through and solve big problems?
Over the two days, delegates will examine the science of pedagogy as it interacts with architecture to enhance student learning and enable student success. Thinking through these ideas will involve participation and interaction from educators, researchers, students, architects, engineers, community partners, industry leaders and others. There will be an opportunity to explore the learning environments of the future, both physical and digital, and to explore the complex relationship between space and learning.
The National Forum is delighted to sponsor of this event.
