This chapter will explore the changing context of learning and teaching in UK higher education in the twenty first Century and discuss some approaches to facilitate a pedagogical shift to active learning for student engagement and attainment. Throughout the chapter, the relationship between pedagogy, space and technology will be discussed, although the focus is on how technology and learning spaces can facilitate active learning. Spatial flexibility can prevent lecturer inertia in learning methods and problem based and active learning encourages not only different learning but more varied and ambitious assessment. These new pedagogies can contribute to the development of participatory approaches to curriculum development and enhanced student outcomes.
