NSW Department of Education are designing learning hubs to reflect best practice in learning environments. The design intent reflects the ability to reconfigure classrooms supports current and emerging teaching and learning practices.
These typologies describe five different classroom types that increase in openness with varying configurability from traditional, Type A, to open-plan, Type E.
Research suggests that type ‘D’ provides the greatest flexibility for teachers and students supporting appropriate learning and teaching (Dovey & Fisher, 2014).
Teachers and students can reconfigure settings to enable varied learning modes and maximise use of space within hubs.
