Connecting physical university spaces with research-based education strategy

Brent Carnell


This paper looks at the link between enhancing education and ensuring an innovative fit-for-purpose estate. It argues that a nuanced approach and joined-up dialogue is needed between university staff whose remit covers these areas. Using semi-structured interviews with students and staff at a research-intensive university in London, UK, the focus centres around the link between the institution’s innovative research-based education approach and its relationship to the university’s spaces. The paper outlines the institution’s approach to education and then moves on to unpack four key space principles to implement a research-based education strategy which is sensitive to a university’s physical environment.
