In my previous post I wrote that even though research shows lectures to be less than effective in helping students to learn, they still persist in higher education. Deeper learning often only comes about when we gain the interest of our students.

Learning in round spaces

Learning with e's

Situating learning in rectangular spaces naturally promotes some forms of pedagogy at the expense of others. So what happens when we change the shape of the learning space? Change it again, and face the participants outwards instead, and what is the effect?
