Transformative Learning Spaces coLAB

Designing  Transformative Learning Spaces.

co-Stewards Claude Siegenthaler and Hilary Bradbury

We invite our coLAB facilitators  - who are designing and leading learning spaces in the AR+ community - to convene in a peer learning environment. Our intention is to help one another create more effective, more transformative, learning designs. We'll therefore inquire into the principles and quality choicepoints that scaffold transformative learning spaces and see how they apply in our efforts too!

During each session we will therefore work with an issue prepared by one or more of the rotating protagonist-participants. Participants are invited to bring their coLAB experience for consultation and to be inspired to experimentation with new ARTistic practices.  We imagine each case can be discussed at least twice – first for learning about “current state & aspiration” and later with a debrief to reflecting on which experiments worked and which did not work.

In this, and as usual through AR+ eco-system, we act as developmental friends.

During the session we will bring an informed developmental perspective to the case. At the end of each session we will harvest lessons learned and key principles. Our intention is in learning from experience and to distill our insights in a way useful to self and others within and beyond our coLABs. Our evolving knowledge about better designed learning spaces - and how to ensure them - will help support Action-oriented Researchers for Transformation (ART) and a next generation of ARTists.

In this  video Claude and Hilary chat together about their earliest joint experiment with creating transformative learning spaces. This began in the context of an executive doctoral program in Switzerland in 2015.  Their work aimed to integrate personal development with Action-oriented Research for Transformations.  The emphasis on personal development (AKA first person work) was considered controversial by some faculty and students at the start...but it ended up becoming a big draw for later cohorts of students...listen in!
