This book highlights the importance of the psychology of place in the educational setting; specifically, how people are influenced by the learning environment, and how in turn, those inhabiting it, shape the learning space.

The unique interrelationship between teachers and learners, in the context of the learning environment is explored. The goal is to enable the reader to re-imagine how classrooms and common learning areas can be curated to genuinely support the transactions of the people who use them.

Moreover, by situating psychological theory and educational theory within the formal places where learning occurs, the book provides evidence for educators, researchers, and design professionals on how the interior spatial design of classrooms and the common learning areas may be planned to encourage, and engage the learner(s), and enhance the things to be learned.

This book is recommended reading for graduate courses in environmental and developmental psychology, global education, and public policy; and for interior design and architecture students and researchers. It will also appeal to teachers, specialist educational planners, and architects.


Authors: Dr. Peter C. Lippman is a Director of PCL, Places Created for Learning, Perth, Western Australia. Dr Elizabeth Matthews is a Lecturer in the Department of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, City College, City University of New York, USA.
