Since a year or so I am interested in the subject of what is referred to as “Learning spaces”. I am right now involved in a project (initiated by 4TU CEE and Designlab) whereby we are experimenting with different setups of lecture rooms on our campus. We are trying to find out how students experience these setups. Those setups are quite low tech by the way, but still there is already lot's to learn from that. But I am also interested on the newest technology, as you might know. And I am always interested in what other universities are doing with this subject of Learning spaces.
