Call for Papers: Space – Winter 2019
Traditional classrooms were rectangles with rows of desks lined up neatly. The open school movement began to challenge that model in the 1960s, but most schools tended to stick with the traditional design. Contemporary school architecture has begun to imagine innovative design principles for nearly every physical object and space in the school – the building, classrooms, desks, seats, offices, teacher’s rooms, and more. This issue of the journal will explore the topic of space, and will address questions such as:
doesthe design of a building and its components convey messages about the school’s core values?
- How do design elements in the school building impact on the school environment, the student experience, and student learning?
- How can a school
housedin a traditional building adapt its current space without significant construction expenses?
- How can the design of the classroom be adapted for different instructional and learning modes?
- How are our notions of metaphorical spaces, such as safe spaces or holy spaces, linked to the physical spaces we create?
Abstracts should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 1st 2019
