Where shall the future student learn? Student expectations of university facilities for teaching and learning
McLaughlin, Patricia and Mills, Anthony 2008, Where shall the future student learn? Student expectations of university facilities for teaching and learning, in Proceedings of the 17th Annual Teaching and Learning Forum, [Curtin University], [Perth, W.A.], pp. 1-9.
This paper examines some of the issues surrounding educational facilities - their design and impact upon student learning now and into the future. It details some of the recent literature in this area with particular emphasis upon teaching and learning trends that match the needs of modern students. The responses of a group of first year university students in the School of Property, Construction and Project Management at RMIT University are also matched against these trends. The conclusions from these responses drawn indicate that the future university student will want flexible learning spaces that can adapt to both individual and collaborative work with a strong emphasis on social learning and advanced technology. The responses also indicate a mismatch between existing lecture theatres and tutorial rooms and the third space learning that these graduates of 2011 want. The results have implications for all higher education institutions as we enter the new millennium.
