Flexible learning environment : A study of a university library's re-planning of space, based on perspectives on knowledge production and learning (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of the study is to examine how different factors, such as views on how knowledge is produced and how learning takes place, effect the way an academic library manages space. This is done by looking into how a specific library, namely Library & Learning Resources (LLR) at the University of Borås, by re-planning the building’s structure, design and functions, can support the students’ different studying habits. The analysis is performed by using a theoretical perspective built by a model first created by the architect Daniel Koch. The model is designed to look upon how space produces meaning and knowledge. To this I have added a socio-cultural perspective on learning. Koch’s theoretical model is used as a method with the aim to study how the library is structured and designed. The model is used to analyse three types of space distribution; in space, by space and through space. After analysing the material with these different ways of distribution the results processed once more to obtain an approach to how knowledge is produced and to see how that corresponds with a sociocultural learning perspective. It is concluded that the LLR has an open approach to how knowledge is produced and that the library supports the socio-cultural way in which the students learn and conduct their studies in. The Library has an open and flexible view on how different functions in the library can be used and the aim is to support the many different ways in which studies are conducted.
