Introduction | Tufts Classrooms | Teaching in Different Kinds of Classrooms | Makerspaces
The design of any learning space is a collaborative effort between architects, facilities managers, engineers, IT specialists, university administrators and–perhaps most importantly–students and faculty. Primary consideration should be for the immediate and long-term purposes of the space and the needs of the users. Therefore, because the purpose of a space and the needs of learners vary, designs should be flexible (Chism & Bickford, 2002; Oblinger, 2004). Classroom and building design should also be mindful of the fact that learning is not restricted to the bounds of a classroom, studio or lab, but may arise in any physical or virtual space.
