STEM Learning Environments

What are effective designs for learning environments in general? What practices are best suited for informal learning environments? The design of learning environments has emerged as an important field of study and various models of development have developed over the past 10-20 years. The design of learning environments is an iterative reflective process that involves theoretical, practical, and pedagogical dimensions. This section provides example of different models of design, the merging principles that have been developed and the implications for implementation, particularly for STEM and for climate change.
