Learning spaces in universities are changing often reflecting the adoption of constructivist approaches to learning. This project aimed to produce a coherent model for a full evaluation cycle of learning spaces, from conceptualisation and design, to implementation, post-occupancy, and reintegration of findings in subsequent development cycles. Challenges faced by institutions in learning spaces design and other findings are described at the project website: http://www.swinburne.edu.au/spl/learningspacesproject/.
