Journal of Learning Spaces

Swivel DesksThe first edition of the "Journal of Learning Spaces" is available. This is a free open access, referred scholarly journal about the design of physical classrooms and other educational rooms and buildings, as well as virtual on-line learning places.

One nice touch is that the papers are available in HTML as well as PDF format, making them easier to read on-line and particularly useful as readings for an on-line course.
