How do the spaces and experiences we create affect the future of education and design?

Educators, designers and communities have collaborated to reimagine learning in the newly opened Learning Lab. Working together to create an immersive experience, this unique space will empower learners from Victoria to think differently and experience places and spaces and big ideas in a co-creative environment.

This panel discussion shares a behind-the-scenes look into the process of creating our Learning Lab including, content, style, format, design and sequence.
