Students help design their learning environment

HSG Learning Center

How do spatial, virtual and social university learning environments change against the background of societal change and megatrends?

In seminars, HSG students were able to express their wishes and requirements with regard to future learning environments such as the HSG Learning Center.
The students developed numerous innovative concepts: for instance, learning in an escape room was tested for the acquisition of team skills, working under time pressure and while feeling insecure. The students agreed with regard to the added value of cooperation, dialogue and community: in a world that is constantly becoming more complex, an exchange with fellow students, teachers, researchers, customers, employees, practical partners and the general public is becoming more and more important – and more and more sensitive.

“Universities must continuously develop their learning environments and teaching/learning formats and develop innovations for this purpose if they want to remain equal to current education trends and technological developments.” This is the proposition which students dealt with in various seminars of the University of St.Gallen.

Students create
In seminars, HSG students were able to express their wishes and requirements with regard to future learning environments such as the HSG Learning Center. They also discussed how these could be implemented. The students developed numerous innovative concepts: for instance, learning in an escape room was tested for the acquisition of team skills, working under time pressure and while feeling insecure.

Learning in a different world
Another group developed ideas to enable learning in a different world through virtual reality. A third group developed an orienteering program for individual value reflection.

Exchange and dialogue as success factors
The students agreed with regard to the added value of cooperation, dialogue and community: in a world that is constantly becoming more complex, an exchange with fellow students, teachers, researchers, customers, employees, practical partners and the general public is becoming more and more important – and more and more sensitive. This is why future learning environments have to provide space for various forms of interaction and be able to adapt to changing requirements.
