Join us on August 31st for a Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation (CRLI) seminar with Dr Pippa Yeoman, Lessons in reading the learning landscape.


The human drive to learn is strong, but not irrepressible. The ways in which people engage in learning can be shaped by a range of factors, including developmental, social, economic and political factors. Such influences have been studied widely, but rather little is known about how physical space affects learning activity.

Space matters. The current NSW budget for school infrastructure over the next four years is set at $2.6 billion, and the University of Sydney has committed $2.5 billion to building projects on its Camperdown campus, by 2020. Whilst these figures highlight an area of significant investment in education, there is very little actionable educational research that traces the relations between learning activity and the learning environment. How does your current location support learning activity? Do you look forward to teaching in any particular space? How do you adapt your teaching and learning practices to work with and not against the spaces in which you are scheduled to teach?

Drawing on fieldwork in innovative school and university settings, Dr Pippa Yeoman will present some of the theoretical tools she uses to explore the connections between learning activity and the learning environment. Pippa’s PhD dissertation, Habits & habitats: An ethnography of learning entanglement, can found here.
