Scholars in a wide range of disciplines — but mostly literature, information, and communication — document case studies of collaboratively designed and technologically sophisticated information spaces that can serve as examples and inspiration in other development, design, or invention projects. They consider perspectives and methods for higher education spaces, innovative models for teaching and learning spaces, fostering innovations in higher education spaces, and models for cross-disciplinary collaboration and space design in higher education.

The beauty of Cases on Higher Education Spaces: Innovation, Collaboration, and Technology is that it collates numerous case studies of learning spaces, both physical and virtual. [...] This reference is an excellent book of diverse education spaces. The extracted snippets illustrate the wide range of cases that will inform educators, administrators, and management on how best to proceed with new environments for learning.

– Michael Vallance, Department of Media Architecture, Future University Hakodate, Japan

This book provides a model of how these deeper issues may be valuably explored. The scope and breath of examples is both engaging and thought provoking. The case studies are well written and often unvarnished, which allows the reader to construct a complete picture of both the frustrations and celebrations of creating innovative learning spaces within the context of higher education institutions.

– Patricia Thompson, Penn State Harrisburg, USA

A comprehensive source of insights into the use of learning space, and it collates numerous case studies of learning experiences. In our opinion, Cases on Higher Education Spaces: Innovation, Collaboration, and Technology is a highly recommendable book that is well-organized, well-written, and well-integrated. The scope and breadth of examples is both engaging and thought provoking. It is worth noting that the greatest value and forte of this book is that its authors were able to systematically address each of the components of this immense subject, providing clear-cut explanations and specific examples to explicitly and successfully get their points across to the readers. The cases, terms and notions covered are described in simple and comprehensible language, using grounded and intelligible examples. It is only logical to conclude that this book will be of particular interest and utility to a wide range of readers.
