Project —

The project we (Mie Guldbæk Brøns, Bodil Hovaldt Bøjer and I) will be working on is an educational project with focus on the linkage between design and pedagogy. The misconception that new spaces change pedagogical practice simply because of their spatial design is in the way of pedagogical development as part of refurbishments and/or expansions in educational buildings. Through developing and testing various types of activation of innovative learning environments in accordance with 21st Century skills, we want to help teachers work actively with the design of the physical space and designers to create spatial design based on pedagogy and the actual needs of the users.
