Innovating Teaching and Learning Practices: Key Elements for Developing Creative Classrooms in Europe
This paper looks at how to innovate teaching and learning practices at system level. It describes the vision for ‘Creative Classrooms’ and makes a consolidated proposal for their implementation, clarifying their holistic and systemic nature, their intended learning outcomes, and their pedagogical, technological, and organisational dimensions for innovation. ‘Creative Classrooms’ (CCR) are conceptualized as innovative learning environments that fully embed the potential of ICT to innovate learning and teaching practices in formal, non-formal and informal settings.
This ebook is the proceedings of Future Learning Spaces, the 7th annual conference in the Designs on E-Learning series. The Designs on E-Learning conferences were founded by The Centre for Learning and Teaching in Art and Design (cltad), which is based at the University of the Arts London.

Future Learning Spaces: The Potential and Practice of Learning 2.0 in Higher Education (9781466628519): Charlotte Holland, Miriam Judge: Book Chapters
Higher education institutions are promoting the integration of online technologies in teaching and learning as an attempt to provide flexible modes of delivery, to diversify the profile of students accessing higher education and to facilitate the development of life-long learning skills. The availability of personal digital devices, such as wireless laptops and mobile phones, and campus-wide Internet connectivity has the potential to enhance or detract from learning in higher education. This chapter explores the trend towards online learning in higher education, examining the potential of and current practices in the integration of Information and Communication Technologies, focusing on the use of Web 2.0 technologies in teaching and learning, and presenting some of the challenges that arise in the integration of online technologies and implementation of Learning 2.0 in higher education.

The TILE (Spaces to Transform, Interact, Learn, Engage) project will create new learning space structures that address a variety of teaching and learning needs on campus and help recruit and retain students.
These new student centered spaces will support a variety of models for teaching and learning, including self-paced learning; active learning; increased student engagement; collaborative teamwork; and increased interaction with faculty. In addition to the physical and technology enhancements to these spaces, a key component of the project will be to provide technical support and course design assistance to faculty to use these spaces for active and engaged learning.
