Retrofitting teaching spaces: Did our dreams come true?

Trevor Billany, Ruth Billany

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    Using Appreciative Inquiry an evaluation of newly retrofitted and upgraded centrally timetabled teaching spaces took place following the first semester of use. Survey instrument items and interview prompts were derived from a metasynthesis of relevant reviews, each informed by current ‘learning spaces’ literature. Teaching staff (N=28) completed an online questionnaire and/or attended interviews (N=4). Their experiences and opinions with regard to the technology; the fitness for teaching purposes; the room layout, décor and furniture; and the support offered is discussed. Implications and future directions are indicated.
