Rethinking spaces – New ways of extending learning beyond the classroom

Educational approaches such as “Flipped Classroom” increasingly involve learning beyond the classroom. In order to facilitate these didactic scenarios new learning spaces are required that are independent of traditional classroom structures. In this session we will present two alternative perspectives concerning the rethinking of spaces; developing physical environments for more collaborative and flexible learning as well as using mobile devices for situated and location-based learning. We will illustrate them with experiences from the following ETH projects:

  • Team Working Spaces: new spaces at ETH-Library for collaborative learning and for study breaks are created through prototyping and design thinking.
  • GIS supported mobile outdoor experiments: students collect data with their smartphones while being on excursion.
  • Location- and context based mobile Teaching and Learning: students solve location-based problems and get information about specific objects or locations they are visiting.
