Construction for constructivism : constructivist learning theory's potential impact on physical learning environments for colleges and universities
MetadataShow full item record
Learning space design can have a significant impact on student learning. When viewed through a lens of constructivist learning models, physical learning spaces can be designed intentionally to reflect an unprecedented level of student access to information and today’s students’ need to learn through the construction of knowledge through relationships both with other students and instructors. This paper seeks to explore the principles of constructivist learning theories and how they might impact physical learning space design. Further, it looks at instructor development within this context and how learning spaces may be used to have the greatest impact on college student learning.
