2011
Swinburne University of Technology

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.

Designing next generation places of learning: collaboration at the Pedagogy-Space-Technology nexus

The University of Queensland

The University of Queensland has demonstrated that student learning is a priority in a variety of ways. The primary goal is to fully develop, rigorously test int eh field, thoroughly evaluate and disseminate widely a new design framework. The project will involve the design, demonstration and evaluation of three distinct types of learning environment using this unified approach that have been pioneered at the University. At the completion of this project, there will be at least three new learning spaces - one library, one collaborative learning centre and one advanced concept teaching space. These spaces will embody new ways of learning, new ways to use space and next generation technology. They will be exemplars at the very leading edge of world-wide learning practice. Teh major transferable outcome of the project will be the new design framework based on the pedagogy-space-technology nexus.

Curriculum renewal in postgraduate information technology education: a response to growing service sector dominance

Professor Joseph Davis
The University of Sydney
2011
The University of Sydney

Themes central to the study of services were identified as: service system fundamentals, service systems management, service systems engineering, service technologies, business process modelling, knowledge management systems, customer relationship management, and modern organisations. Detailed course descriptions and some teaching materials for each of these themes were developed.

Also implemented was a Service Learning and Teaching Foundry, which provides a virtual space for students to learn important service-oriented approach/business process modelling (SOA/BPM) concepts, gain hands-on experience with service-oriented software engineering, and practise their skills using real world examples.
