How do spaces for learning and teaching impact upon the achievement of small group learning outcomes? A student perspective at the University of Sheffield, UK.

  • Eleanor Rosario University of Sheffield

Abstract

The importance of active participation by students in their learning is now accepted
by many in education. This project explored how students perceive learning and
teaching spaces to influence their learning outcomes, specifically for small group
activities. Using survey and focus groups, Student Associates for Learning and
Teaching (SALTs) harnessed student opinions in a UK University’s Faculty of
Medicine Dentistry and Health. This work resulted in the generation of
recommendations, which will engage student opinion for future development of
learning and teaching spaces.
