Roundtable World Café Session / Panel 3: The Advanced Learning Environments and Infrastructure: The classroom of the future.
Focus: It is widely recognised that education is undergoing a revolution. What is delivered, to whom, and how, are key concepts, but no less important is where delivery takes place. This panel will consider the importance of environment on the learning process. Changes in learning styles, advances in technology, learning in the workplace, online learning, and blended approaches may all be considered, but so too the future of training facilities, the limitations to ‘Real World Learning’ and whether there remains a need for traditional classrooms.

Chair: Dr Craig Thompson, Head of School, Stenden Hotel Management School, NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands.
