Connecting physical and virtual spaces in a HyFlex pedagogic model with a focus on teacher interaction

  title={Connecting physical and virtual spaces in a HyFlex pedagogic model with a focus on teacher interaction},
  author={Marie Leijon and Bj{\"o}rn Lundgren},
This article highlights interaction within physical and virtual spaces in a higher education HyFlex learning environment with live streamed lectures and seminars. What kinds of learning spaces do we shape when we connect physical and virtual spaces? How do we interact in these spaces, and how do they affect our interaction? The perspective of ‘designs for learning’ theoretically frames the study. The result show that several different spaces are shaped; physical space, representational space…

Space as designs for and in learning: investigating the interplay between space, interaction and learning sequences in higher education

It is argued that space is an important part of designs for learning, where the building and the rooms are parts of the framing and the conditions for learning; furthermore, space is discussed as a resource in the meaning-making process, considering space as a significant part of design in learning.

Exploring teachers’ perceptions of videoconferencing practice through space, movement and the material and virtual environments

Classrooms and the Design of Pedagogic Discourse: A Multimodal Approach

Towards a framework of interactions in a blended synchronous learning environment: what effects are there on students' social presence experience?

The findings show that the online and face-to-face groups had different social presence experiences in which interaction emerged, and a framework of interactions in the blended synchronous learning environment is conceptualised to inform course development and instructional design.

Learning in Liminal Spaces
