“Learning is the central activity of colleges and universities. Sometimes that learning occurs in classrooms (formal learning); other times it results from serendipitous interactions among individuals (informal learning). Space – whether physical or virtual – can have an impact on learning. It can bring people together; it can encourage exploration, collaboration, and discussion. Or, space can carry an unspoken message of silence and disconnectedness. More and more, we see the power of built pedagogy (the ability of space to define how one teaches) in colleges and universities.” – Diana Oblinger, Learning Spaces. EDUCAUSE, 2006.
