The 2019 conference theme, Spaces, People, Practice, echoes the intent of the conference name itself by providing forum for colleagues to come together and engage in collaborative discussions on the ever increasing complex landscape that is learning in the 21st century. Learning, as conceived within this event, is not confined to a particular milieu but instead aims at connecting people and contexts to innovate and create unique learning opportunities in what is now acknowledged to be a life-long learning journey. This idea is represented very strongly in the wide variety of workshops that were presented and attended on the first day of the conference with themes ranging including Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Historical Developments of Learning Spaces, Dancing about architecture, Community Based Participatory Research approaches among others. The second day of the conference includes informative presentations from authors encompassing a wide background of learning contexts such as academics, teachers, learners, architects, designers and more. A wide variety of third level institutions are also represented from universities, institutes of technology, community, industry, government agencies, policy makers and regulators, under the frame of learning connections. Two key guiding questions were conceived for the genesis of this event: 1. How can we connect across disciplinary boundaries, and break down barriers between academia, administration, community and industry to strive for optimal student learning in Third Level Institutions? 2. How can learning in different spaces - physical, active, virtual, off campus, enable all students, as global citizens, to think through and solve big problems?
