The Effective Teaching and Learning Spatial Framework was developed within the context of higher education as part of the writer’s PhD research. It was underpinned by an evaluation of four new generation learning environments conducted at four Australian universities. The Framework and resultant evaluation tool is considered to have broader cross sector application into Schools, TAFE institutions and corporate learning environments. The objective of the PhD was to develop an evaluation tool that: could be applied to any formal classroom space to test its alignment with effective teaching and learning practice; could be implemented by teachers to help develop their teaching practice; could be implemented by designers to help design activity-based classrooms; was simple to use (anyone can implement), and could be repeated any time. Within the last fifteen years a new space typology has emerged on University campuses across the world, vicariously called New Generation Learning Environments or Spaces, and presenting an alternative to traditional classrooms such as lecture theatres, tutorial rooms and seminar spaces. These new classrooms have developed out of academic demand for spaces that enable greater collaboration and interaction between students, underpinned by an understanding of ‘good’ or ‘effective’ teaching and learning processes.
