Subject of course

Learning spaces are changing- a new vision for learning!

We will take a look at the changing learning environments in the urban fabric as spaces for communication, information and social interaction. Change are due to  new media, a growing commercialisation of knowlegdge vs free access of knowledge.  This class is part of the Sondermodul "Bildungslandschaft in Bewegung".
