Learning Environments

Within a Faculty full of built environment specialists, it is no surprise that our research on learning and teaching includes assessing the spatial qualities of educational environments. The Learning Environments Applied Research Network (LEaRN), a University of Melbourne research group supported by the Melbourne School of Design, specialises in this area of research. Additional outputs can be found at LEaRN’s online repository.
