Interactive learning spaces for knowledge creation and transfer

  • Apr 24, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The spaces in which we engage with each other have a significant impact on how we interact and the experiences we have during these interactions.  Recently there has been increasing research in the design of spaces and the activities that are best aligned with the outcomes we are trying to achieve.

RMIT University has recently opened their new Swanston Academic Building which has been specifically designed for interactive learning, with a wide range of learning space designs to enable student-centered learning.  This Meetup will be facilitated by Dr Arthur Shelley in the "conversational space" and we will visit several other spaces to discuss what we might do with them to engage with others.  We will have some materials about the spaces, as we  will not be able to visit them all during the time available.  However, the focus will be on the interactions between us in conversations about the strengths and limitations of the spaces.

Agenda:

6:00-6:30 Networking with other thinking collaborators (over drinks and nibbles).
6:30-7:15 Conversations about interactive spaces in interactive spaces!
7:15-8:00 Informal conversation among the group to explore the ideas and concepts.
Dinner afterwards for interested parties (self pay)

About Dr Arthur Shelley:

Arthur is currently creating a collaborative research group interested in how the learning environment impacts collaborative learning outcomes.  He has been an active member of KMLF since 2004 and facilitating postgraduate learning programs at RMIT since 2007.  He is the author of to books, The Organizational Zoo and Being a Successful Knowledge Leader  and was formerly the Global Knowledge Director for Cadbury Schweppes.

    Great opporutnity to see, feel and discusss how space can impact on learning and interaction

    Participants generated some good dialogue and ideas. I have collected the content and will collate it next week - thanks for your inputs and ideas. We will share the summary here and some of the material and images on Slideshare soon.

    Great space with fit for purpose rooms. Thanks for the conversations and insights, I think our learning environments are often overlooked. Nice work RMIT thumbs up!

    Quick question. How long will the tour be?

    April 23, 2013

    • Arthur S.

      Chris- it is not really a "tour" participants will be walking through the spaces considering how they might be used to stimulate creative learning opportunities- so we are exploring and then discussing.

      Oh, I thought the architect was showing us around?

    Apologies. A family commitment has arisen. Looking fwd to hearing about the meeting. Great topic. Best wishes, Peter

    April 20, 2013

    • Arthur S.

      Amazing how many family matters matter the day before ANZAC day. Nice to hear so many of our members are fully engaged with family- it is the type of spirit we wish to engender int he KMLF too.

  • John M.

    Unfortunately I cannot attend now. A community matter has arisen.

    April 21, 2013

    • Arthur S.

      You should bring them along and make use of the spaces to interactively solve the community matter! :)

    Really sorry to have to miss this one. The new building at RMIT looks amazing and I was hoping to learn more about how it is designed but family commitment has to come first.

    April 22, 2013

    • Arthur S.

      We will have some of the designers and engineers there as well as educators who are using the spaces. Sorry to miss you, but fully understand- see my reply to Andrew above.

      April 23, 2013

  • Andrew M.

    Sorry to miss this. I've already had too many nights without seeing my family.

    April 22, 2013

    • Arthur S.

      Family always trumps knowledge sharing Andrew. What is the sense of knowledge sharing if you never see your family?

      April 23, 2013

  • Yvonne G.

    Very sorry to be missing this one.

    April 23, 2013

  • Richard V.

    I am very sorry Arthur that I now cannot attend tomorrow. I am sadly out of town now. I was looking forward to this session!

    would love to participate, fascinating topic but looking after my two month old at home. Looking forward to joining in hopefully soon. Have fun. Mirela

    Would have liked to come to this but unable this time :(

    Great topic - looking forward to it!

  • Jason R.

    I am really looking forward to this!!

    April 18, 2013

    • Arthur S.

      Jason, It will be good to see you again. The learning experience is very different to what we had available to you when you were going through. The spaces, when well used, can increase the richness of the learning and enable more facilitation of conversations from the knowledge in the room. Don't forget it is Building 80!

      April 18, 2013

  • Arthur S.

    This is looking like becoming a large group- we up to 40 now. That will make it interesting as a conversational session. Please come prepared to participate as we will be walking around and writing what we think the spaces would be good for (and collecting this data).

    Unfortunately can't make this one as it clashes with an evening class. Looking forward to the May meeting though.

    April 2, 2013

    • Arthur S.

      Thanks Erica - Hope your class is interactive and student-focused, rather than teacher and content focused. :) See you in May.
