This learning event is right for you if you are interested in utilising new and existing learning spaces to improve student learning informed by research and contemporary practices.


Learning Space Design  is an opportunity for a very hands-on workshop providing the potential to validate or refashion current stages of your school's facilities master plan and designs to ensure that the investment you make in future infrastructure will provide you with the very best design solution to meet the needs of your students and your school community.

Schools will be able to take advantage of information that addresses innovative learning space design with existing and new spaces, as well as longer term sustainability of their facilities.

Each participating school team will embark on an individual journey that explores learning goals and school vision, and connect these through brainstorming and best practice examples of innovative designs that meet the needs of the school and future sustainability.

Many independent schools in Victoria are making substantial investments in their future infrastructure and making submissions for funding through the BGA.  These workshops are designed to provide schools with information to assist with decision making.

Further feedback and assistance will be available through video-conference with Dr Denison.
