Designing Future Innovative Learning Spaces

Welcome to the Training - Designing Future Innovative Learning Spaces (DesignFILS)

The world and society are changing, so are the classrooms. Learning spaces are transformed and developed over the years. The new learning spaces are considered as being more learner-centred and more flexible to support 21st century skills of the learners.

In this course, you will explore future innovative learning spaces, technology-enhanced learning and innovative pedagogies. It will provide the course participants with essential knowledge, tips and tools to handle a wide range of issues such as physical, virtual and hybrid spaces, digital technologies, active learning and learning scenarios. Overall, this course will enable participants to gain a better understanding of innovation in education. 

You can follow the course at your own pace. We will open one module at the beginning of each week, but there is only a final deadline you need to pay attention to (for the quizzes and the activities).
