NZ Chapter - LEARNING SPACES AOTEAROA One-day Conference

  • 09 August 2024
  • 8:15 AM - 5:00 PM
  • Te Auaha, 65 Dixon Street Wellington, Wellington 6011


Learning Spaces Aotearoa is a one-day conference aimed at connecting those passionate about designing learning spaces and transforming the lives of the people that use them.

The theme of this year’s LSA conference is Design for Wellbeing.

The design of a learning space can promote the physical, mental, spiritual, and social well-being of the users.

Presenters and site visits will explore the intersection of the physical environment, education, and well-being in Aotearoa. This will include topics such as mātauranga māori, biophilic design, building science and architecture. We will learn how spaces facilitate wellness through design.

Hosted at Te Auaha, MC Derek Weymouth, will guide delegates through a full day of talks and site visits showcasing the best of what contemporary learning spaces can offer.

This year's event begins with our Keynote speaker Dr. Julia Atkin who is universally recognised for her rich understanding of learning and thinking and providing practical ways to support teachers and leaders in enhancing learning for all.

The day will continue with a series of WĀNANGA by industry experts in education, design and research. Each talk is designed to provoke and stimulate thinking around cultural influences, school-wide learning culture, climate change, collaborative pedagogy and how we involve tamariki in the design process.

In addition to our speakers, we also have site visits - an opportunity to explore some of the newest, unique and contemporary learning spaces in Te Whanganui a Tara.

The day will conclude with Bookend speaker Principal and disrupter in education, Nicola Ngarewa.

The full programme is available here.
