1st International conference "Educational Architecture - Challenges of Change"

VGTU

November 22, 2018 – November 23, 2018


The purpose of this conference is to bring together international scholars working in the field of educational architecture in the broadest sense of the words. We particularly invite proposals from scholars in related fields such as architecture, educational sciences, history, sociology, and others.  This event aims for interdisciplinary discussions, that can highlight and broaden the problem of learning environment while the educational attitudes, methods and systems change. The considerations may include different kinds of learning environment, from preschools to universities, from outdoor learning spaces, playgrounds to theme parks, libraries, museums or community centers. The main focus will be paid on the architecture of schools.

With a clear perception of what has already happened, we are increasingly focusing on the possible, inevitable and necessary changes of learning spaces in order to meet the needs of contemporary learning society.

The two days conference will be structured to encourage mutual inspiration and fruitful debate among researchers. The conference languages are English and Lithuanian, and simultaneous translation will be provided.
