The International Journal of Learning Spaces Studies (IJLSS) is a multi-disciplinary, double blind, peer-reviewed and open-access journal published quarterly. IJLSS provides a scholarly forum for research articles, case studies, book reviews, and educational studies related to all aspects of learning space design, operation, pedagogy, and assessment in education.

Each of the terms in the title of this publication deserves some additional explanation. We define learning as the process of acquiring knowledge, skill, or understanding as a result of study, experience, or teaching.

Learning spaces Studies are designed to support, facilitate, stimulate, or enhance learning and teaching. Learning spaces encompass formal, informal, and virtual environments:

  • formal: lecture halls, laboratories, traditional classrooms
  • informal: learning commons, multimedia sandbox, residential study areas, huddle rooms
  • virtual: learning management systems, social media websites, online virtual environments
