Towards a learning commons for architecture

Peter Holgate, Rachel Sara

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The newly formed aae generates a unique opportunity to establish a learning commons for architecture, in which architectural educators committed to inquiry and innovation convene: to exchange ideas; to collaborate in the co-creation of knowledge; and to employ these outputs in meeting the challenges of educating architecture students for personal, professional, and civic life. This position paper reflects on the provenance and development of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) in order to build a case for such a commons. Through this model, we argue that the aae might be conceived as a conceptual space which should be established as an inclusive, critical and collegiate community of practice, dedicated to the public exchange, development and communication of architectural education.
