Participatory designing enables school community members to have a say in the shaping of new or renovated learning spaces. A participatory process can inform the work of professional designers and architects in realising these collective wishes and needs.


This webinar is for ‘everyday designers’ with an interest in creating school spaces that support learning, teaching and student wellbeing. We will explore how school community members, including students, can collaborate in (re)imagining their physical school environment. The webinar will cover basic participatory designing concepts and practices, illustrated by real life school design experiences. No prior professional design knowledge or experience is required. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and share learning space design ideas and experiences.


Outcomes for attendee:

  • Understand basic participatory designing concepts in a practical school context
  • Identify learning space design problems
  • Develop a simple participatory designing project with students and/or school community
