"Yesterday I lectured and today I taught" A report on creative inquiry learning spaces: Actively connecting and engaging with students

Lee, Kar-Tin, Nykvist, Shaun S., Mukherjee, Michelle, & Philip, Robyn (2016) "Yesterday I lectured and today I taught" A report on creative inquiry learning spaces: Actively connecting and engaging with students.


The requirement for graduates from QUT to be curious, agile and resilient learners, coupled with new ways of working and a proliferation of mobile technologies, has triggered an urgent need for new approaches to learning and teaching. This development is aptly characterised by disruption and movement at all levels, with an emphasis on connecting with and engaging students (Nykvist, Mukherjee & McGraw, 2014). In order to maximise student learning, this inevitable disruption includes the physical and virtual spaces, technology provisions as well as the vital need for change of the role of the academic in these spaces. To this end, the Creative Inquiry Learning Space (CILS) prototyping project (KG S307/8) aims to explore how the Faculty of Education can actively address emerging learning and teaching practices that support QUT’s vision to produce graduate students who are ‘curious, agile and resilient learners’, who ‘will thrive in volatile environments’ (Real World Learning, 2020 Vision, QUT, 2016c, p.1). More importantly the project will investigate the extent to which learning environments that students prefer can be catered for at QUT and how academics can be adequately supported to reinvigorate their teaching practice to keep up with the current tide.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
