Flexible Learning Space by Design for Teacher Librarians


Flexible school library spaces can support contemporary learning and teaching across schools, which builds the skills and capabilities students will need to thrive in a complex and dynamic future.

In this course, teacher librarians will use design thinking to create a flexible library space for their school. They will work together to design and prototype a flexible library space and explore design principles that enable contemporary learning and teaching in a library space that supports and empowers all learners across faculties and stages.

The principles of universal design will be used to ensure spaces are designed to meet the needs of all learners.

It would be useful for teacher librarians to bring along dimensions of their library space along with budgetary or other guidelines for their design.
