Abstract

Learn anything, anytime, anywhere is the mantra for learning in the digital age. Digital learning opportunities are increasingly challenging traditional classroom learning – but what does this mean for the conceptual design and design-in-use of campus spaces as learning locations? Does space really not matter in learning? During a two-day design thinking workshop an interdisciplinary group of 17 students produced ideas for new learning spaces and mapped out their spatial learning journeys through campus offerings and daily routines. The article describes the workshop concept and resulting insights gleaned from interviews, customer journeys, and prototyping. It offers ideas and examples for creating inviting learning spaces and cultures that focus on co-presence both with and without digital tools.
