We have eight Chapters across the Australasia Region: TAS, NSW, VIC, QLD, SA, WA, ACT and New Zealand, plus an affiliate group in  the Northern Territory.

LEA was formed as an Australasian Chapter in 2000 and the Australaisan Region in 2004. We are affiliated with the Association for Learning Environments, a global network of more than 5,000 professionals.

LEA has over 950 members across Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia. This collaborative community of educators, designers and decision-makers are all passionate about improving learning environments.

The diversity of our professional membership is the key to our success. No community can build a school in isolation or without the participative work of all stakeholders.

LEA hosts over 60 events and professional development programs per year including site visits, workshops, symposia, research programs, Awards programs, think tanks, debates and our annual regional day out (RDO) and annual regional conference.

LEA is driven by three key aims:
○ to advocate for quality learning environments;
○ to promote and share world’s best practice among educators and designers, and;
○ to invest in the research and development of new concepts.

Whether in early childhood, primary, secondary school, or at university, the physical environment can have a profound impact on students’ experiences.

LEA brings together passionate educators, designers and planners to investigate and share best practice around effective, engaging and inspirational learning environments for students at all ages and stages.

There are many different types of learning environments, designed to impact on the diverse range of learners in our schools, early childhood centres and universities.
LEA explores these learning environments through site visits, workshops, seminars and conferences to learn about creating better learning environments for all learners.

LEA provides a range of different events for designers, educators, planners and others to learn more about creating effective learning environments. If you want to know more about how you can plan, design and teach better in your learning environments, please join us at one of our Events or become a member and join our ever growing community of dedicated and passionate professionals.
