Abstract

This paper reports theoretical perspectives about bringing technology to learning places in higher education, how classrooms should be redesigned to support diverse learning and pedagogical approaches to make learning conducive in virtual environments. Thematic analysis was used to examine literature and learning environments for evidence of how learning places should be structured, what space is needed and support systems to ensure new learning places are conducive to learning. Findings indicate seven common problems of traditional learning environments or classrooms. Six big ideas discuss transforming classrooms to virtual learning places in higher education. Results share a systemic view of future classroom design for creating sustainable learning places supported by Curtis Bonk's "We All Learn" framework and others. Future learning places must offer creative and innovative solutions to the challenge of diversity, educational and digital equity in virtual learning.
