As a leader in the field of educational facilities, the Victorian Chapter of Learning Environments Australasia invites you to make submissions for its 2018 Victorian Chapter Outstanding Educational Facilities Awards.

In this fourteenth year of these Awards, Learning Environments Australasia aims to raise the standard of educational planning and design, with a focus on educational outcomes, as it applies to all educational facilities across the Victoria and Tasmania.

 

The core mission of the Awards is to bridge the awareness of architects and school communities about the interplay between teaching and learning methodology and space by identifying examples of good educational spaces where innovative architectural ideas successfully support an educational philosophy.
