SIG Learning Spaces

SIG Learning Spaces – Co-Creation Community

The Learning Spaces Community is a forum for everyone with a passion for higher education (innovation) and a special interest in the (physical, digital and hybrid) learning environment at Utrecht University. We meet regularly to exchange experiences and discuss good practices related to the use and design of learning spaces, share research and innovations in the field, and to explore the broader learning environment at Utrecht University.

We welcome participation from all members of the Utrecht University community, including students, both academic and non-academic staff, faculty, administrators and policy makers, who are interested in the design and use of learning spaces. Meetings may include presentations by guest speakers, tours of innovative learning spaces, and brainstorming sessions to generate new ideas and solutions. The goal of the group is to promote co-creation, collaboration and communication across departments, programmes and disciplines, and to stimulate and advice on continuous improvement in the development and use of future-proof spaces for teaching and learning at Utrecht University.

Upcoming meetings (2023):

Game-based learning in Learning Spaces
Whether it's learning whilst playing or learning by playing a game, Game-based learning is becoming increasingly common in higher education. Suppose you have decided to use a game element or game in your education. How do you organize it and what effect does it have on the physical learning environment? During the SIG / Co-Creation Community Learning spaces of Thursday 1 June (12.00 – 13.30) we will discuss this with each other using examples from experienced colleagues. We might even come up with an idea for a new Future Learning Space. Join in! 

Location: University Library Science Park; Buchelius Hall 6.18.
