The Effects of Furnishings and Technology on Pedagogical Agility and Student Engagement Across Flexible Learning Spaces

Hye Yeon Lee, Crystal M Ramsay, Jenay Robert


We explored how furnishings and technology impact pedagogical agility and student engagement across three flexible learning spaces. We collected various data sources from students and faculty teaching in multiple learning spaces, such as focus group interviews with students, faculty responses to reflection prompts, and pre-and post-occupancy surveys with faculty and students. Flexible furniture configuration was found to support various instructional strategies and facilitate interaction between student-student and student-instructor. A writable surface is beneficial to facilitate student engagement during group activities. Digital displays with content sharing capabilities promote collaborative learning. Specific recommendations for learning space designs and faculty development are provided.
