FROM THE ARCHIVE - Beyond the Beanbag?

Beyond the Beanbag? Towards new ways of thinking about learning spaces
Jos Boys, University of Brighton

This article, published in 2009, looks critically at some of the assumptions in ideas about learning spaces, especially the arguments in favour of a shift from formal to informal learning spaces. It suggests that the formal/informal divide hides more than it reveals about the complex relationships between learning and the spaces in which it takes place; and that learning spaces in postcompulsory education remains an under-theorised and under-researched area.
