Abstract

This paper reports and discusses preliminary findings of research into the ways students demonstrate autonomy in new learning spaces at several universities in Sydney, Australia. The research is situated in a study exploring the way architecture might inform educational design for learner autonomy. Using ethnographic observation methods six new learning spaces have been observed to capture what students actually do and how they practice autonomy. The observations have revealed that autonomy is practiced in various ways. The use of emerging technologies and clever designs in furniture are discussed in light of possible implications for educational task design.
