Learning spaces are physical places and mental states that provide the best grounds for learning to take place in the most inspired and meaningful ways. Some of us need to be in our favourite corner at home or the library before we can focus and do our most productive learning. For others, its not the place that counts but the state or frame of mind they’re in, something they have to “get into” through sheer mental tuning despite life’s infinite distractions. For yet others, their learning space is neither place nor frame but the company of others. The moral here is that no two persons are ever alike in their conception of learning spaces that work best for them. The question then arises as to how this should inform our understanding of learner differences. This issue examines the various dimensions of learning spaces and their implications on tutoring adult learners.

Tutor Profile

As a tutor, I believe that I can help learners to create learning spaces by:

Encouraging them to think independently by giving them short essay tests
Encouraging them to work as a group
Adding variety to the assignments and encouraging them to think from a different perspective
Ensuring that the tutorial room is always conducive for the learners
