In October 2011, State Library of Queensland hosted Professor Stephen Heppell from the United Kingdom to talk about future pedagogies. The day was offered as a professional development for Queensland teachers and educators and focused on the transition of year 7 into secondary school, the roll-out of the National Curriculum and the main design challenges for Queensland classrooms. With schools globally re-thinking the concept of a learning space, moving away from an industrial-era model of a classroom to a space able to support new paradigms for learning in a twenty first century, this presentation was a discussion at the heart of this global revolution.
Professor Stephen Heppell has a string of major new building projects worldwide including a 0-21+ academy in the UK and a complete makeover of a national education system in the Caribbean. His research project in 2003 exploring for the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment and Royal Institute of British Architects in the UK on the impact of new pedagogies on the design of learning spaces kick started a new rhetoric of school design in the UK and beyond.
