Abstract

Social Learning Space (SLS) is a strategy to improve student and staff commitment by means of supporting active learning, social interaction and sense of belonging. When established within University campuses SLS extends informal learning forms in higher education. This paper discusses the general features and design goals of SLS, social ergonomics, strategies to support engagement, the interactive technology considerations (infrastructure and BYOD requirements) and evaluation methods. The paper draws conclusions from 5 SLS case studies with diverse design strategies and uses.
