Sandbox. Learning. Space.

Speakers will introduce the concept of sandboxing as a metaphor for a space designated for exploring approaches to enhance learning that may not be common in a given institutional setting. Sandboxing provides research opportunities to test how space that accommodates a range of pedagogies can improve learning and guide future development of learning spaces.
