Learning Places Scotland Call for Presentations

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 5 April 2023

Learning Places Scotland 2023 is an opportunity for everyone involved in Education, from policy makers to educationalists, teachers, children and young people to come together with those directly involved in creating learning places. We will discuss how the built and natural environments can support the best outcomes for our children and communities creating inclusive low carbon places through the power of learning and investment in the learning estate.

Building on the success of previous Learning Places Scotland events, we are inviting proposals for presentations and workshops, which will investigate, illustrate, demonstrate or celebrate the theme of 'Connecting Learning Environments with Learning Experiences'.

View the Conference Topics & Guidelines

A key requirement for the 2023 Conference is to develop ideas about ‘Connecting Learning Environments with Learning Experiences’.

The conference will be structured around five parallel streams, which pick up on the key themes of the Learning Estate Strategy:

  • suitable: the extent to which spaces support the intended learning and community experiences and outcomes;
  • sustainable estate: the extent to which the estate as a whole is shaped and better integrates to be efficient, effective and adaptable;
  • low carbon: the extent to which the estate and user behaviours are organised to meet the ambitions of Low Carbon Scotland set out in the Programme for Government
  • digital: the extent to which learning experiences and geographies are supported by digital practice, infrastructure and spaces
  • inclusive growth: the extent to which the estate and the outcomes from an integrated set of learning and community experiences support inclusive growth, stronger communities and great places.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.
