Learning Environments: What Paul Saw

Paul Warren @paulw_learn has generously donated some of his time to the CPD team at Reading College. He was set the challenge of making visits to areas of the college on the hunt for great learning environments and this is what he saw:

Floor A

On the first floor there’s some interesting representations of the wonderful staff who work in LLDD

It’s always positive to showcase learners’ work in this way so that they can feel proud of their efforts and their work is made available for others to see.

Displays related to student behaviours are important for learners at the start of the year.

Up on Floor B, you can see some excellent recognition of the outstanding Teaching and Learning that goes on here at Reading College.

There’s a testament to Reading College’s passion for using technology, and a reminder of Activate Learning’s inspiring Learning Philosophy.
