Changing the shape of teaching – Wes Imms and the ILETC Project
01 Sep 2016
Learning Environments Australasia is a proud partner of the Innovative Learning Environments and Teacher Change (ILETC) Project. The project's Lead Chief Investigator, Associate Professor Wesley Imms, has vivid school memories of his Grade 2 teacher turning their classroom into the "SS Discovery". The experience has informed his career and his work on the ILETC Project. Picture: Wesley Imms
In this article from the University of Melbourne's Pursuit, Associate Professor Imms explains the aims behind ILETC in evaluating how learning environments influence the effectiveness of teaching. And how his Grade 2 teacher's ideas for her classroom 50 years ago are more relevant than ever.
"The fact that there are almost no evaluation mechanisms out there for learning space design begs the question – why are we spending billions if we don’t know what success is?”
