  18. 18. 23.9.2016 19 Studio Studios should be flexible and user configurable. Interior surfaces preferably unfinished. Key learning facilities, such as the specialized workstations are part of the studio. The studio is well connected to the workshops to enable students to easily move their work between the workshops and the studio. Each of the three Studio Clusters consists of the following facilities: LIBRARY GALLERY CAFETERIA HUB Informal and Group Learning Desk work Computer work Group work Faculty workspace Socializing Lockers Access to gallery and workshops DESK WORK AREA: This is the hearth of the studio. The set-up and furniture varies and does not necessarily include conventional desks. The space can be easily re-configured by its users. Student lockers are located within the space. SOCIALIZING AREA: Kitchen / coffee shop area, living room and space for ad-hoc meetings GROUPWORK AREA: Small, Medium and Large project/meeting rooms, serve meetings, group work and classroom sessions. COMPUTER WORK AREA: Specialized workstations with software specific to the area of study. STORAGE ROOM: for student work FACULTY WORKSPACE: offices for professors, lecturers and researchers.

  23. 23. Drivers for change: Learning space strategy
  24. 24. Drivers for change: effective and shared use of space Institutions are becoming increasingly aware of the need for ongoing evaluation of the combined academic and economic effectiveness of their facilities.
  25. 25. Seven Principles of Learning Space Design Comfort: a space which creates a physical and mental sense of ease and well-being. Aesthetics: pleasure which includes the recognition of symmetry, harmony, simplicity and fitness for purpose. Flow: the state of mind felt by the learner when totally involved in the learning experience. Equity: consideration of the needs of cultural and physical differences. Blending: a mixture of technological and face-to-face pedagogical resources. Affordances: the “action possibilities” the learning environment provides the users, including such things as kitchens, natural light, Wi-Fi, private spaces, writing surfaces, sofas, and so on. Repurposing: the potential for multiple usage of a space. www.skgproject.com Professor Mike Keppell Charles Sturt University Drivers for change: Informalization of learning and its facilities
