THEMES: Educating Spatial Designers - Designing Spaces for Education

Florida State University  |  16-17 January 2020  |  ABSTRCTS - Round One: 20 June 2019. Round Two: 20 Nov 2019



The Effective Learning Environments initiative of the OECD aims to improve how learning environments support the pedagogies, curriculum, assessment and organisational structures of education to fully develop students’ capacities for the 21st century. The World Institute of Psychology identifies multiple links between education environments and learning aptitude, mood and behavior while UNESCO believes that education is a human right for all throughout life and that access must be matched by quality of both delivery and setting.


This conference and its publications are premised on the belief that education professionals need to collaborate more closely with the designers, architects and planners who create the classrooms, learning spaces and tools we use daily, whether they be in a school environment, a play setting or in the home.

On that basis it brings together people from this diverse range of fields into open dialogue.

The conference forms part of PARADE (Publication and Research in Art, Architectures, Design and Environments) a collaboration between Routledge, Taylor & Francis, Intellect Books, Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Vernon Press, Libri Publishing.
