Future Educational Spaces
LECTURE 2
The world rapidly changes, just like the methods of learning. Personalised learning, problem-based learning, blended learning are some of the approaches to new ways of learning. Because of the covid pandemic, online education has become mainstream rather than optional. How can an educational building adapt to these differrent ways and be flexible to the future ways of learning?

On a larger scale, we look at the university campus and its important role in the city fabric not only for the development of human capital but also as a significant research and economical centre. How does a university campus evolve in time?
