  • Assessment in Virtual Learning Spaces
  • E-portfolios
  • Evaluating Learning Spaces
  • Knowledge Creation Metaphors
  • Learning Space Designs
  • Outdoor and Environmentally Integrated Learning Spaces

Reviews and Testimonials

This book is a well-researched and highly accessible reference book on physical and virtual learning spaces across educational environments. As an educator with familiarity in physical, virtual, and blended learning environments, but by no means a specialist in the area, I found this reference book extremely valuable in its mix of theory and practical information.

Before this, he was Head of the Biomedical Multimedia Unit, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Science, The University of Melbourne, Australia from 1998-2002 and Head of the Interactive Multimedia Unit, Division of Distance and Continuing Education, Central Queensland University, Australia from 1994-1998.

He is currently President of ascilite. In 2007 he edited a book through IGI Global titled Instructional Design: Case Studies in Communities of Practice with authors from eight different countries.
Associate Professor Kay Souter is Associate Dean (Academic) at La Trobe University, in Melbourne Australia. She is the leader of the ‘Spaces for Knowledge Generation project’ (www.skgproject.com), and has been associated with several other major pedagogical research projects. She teaches and researches mostly in the areas of psychoanalytic literary theory and the representations of the female body, and has published widely in these areas. She is currently working on collaborative research projects with colleagues in Melbourne and Delhi, including an anthology of mother-daughter relationships in Indian literature, An Endless Winter’s Night anthology of Mother-Daughter relationships in Indian Literature, with Ira Raja (New Delhi, Women Unlimited Press, 2010).
Matthew Riddle is a Senior Lecturer in Academic Development in the Faculty of Law and Management at La Trobe University, Australia. He has been working in the field of tertiary education since 1993. He has worked as an educational researcher at the University of Cambridge and educational designer at the University of Melbourne, Australia. He is interested in a broad range of higher education issues, particularly in virtual and physical learning spaces, curriculum design and e-learning, and has designed innovative online role-plays. His research uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods in order to build a rich evidence base about student perspectives on daily technology use in the context of their broader learning experience. This research is attempting to change the way we think about learning spaces by examining what students do with their time, where they go, and how they feel about learning spaces.
