Abstract
The underpinning question is, 'In the interests of better business education, how can learning spaces be effective agents of change'? Aspects to be considered are: What are 'learning spaces' (physical, virtual, individual, social, and interwoven)? How can they be used in the interests of better business education? What are the implications for academic staff, learning technologists, librarians, and administrators? The theory and findings of Bransford, Brown, and Cocking (1999), Evans and Wurster (2000), Gardner (2007), Lave (1988), Lave and Wenger (1991), Oblinger (2006), and Van Weigel (2002), among others, will be drawn upon in exploring the questions. To start the roundtable dialogue, a redefinition of learning will be provided. The focus will be on relationships among 'persons-acting', 'actions', and 'contexts' rather than individual development (Lave, 1988).
