Often stereotyped, traditional teaching is characterized by a pedagogical delivery model taking place in a standardized and fixed classroom. Current teaching practices show that many teachers want to shift to a different paradigm with less pedagogical sameness, facilitating personalized, student-centered and active learning, while aiming at building future skills. In this study, the different parameters are explored to bring active learning into practice. The physical design of the space as well as the use of educational technology are critical components that support active learning pedagogy. The academic literature on the three pillars of active learning – pedagogy, space design and technology – forms the theoretical and methodological basis to define strategies and recommendations on the key aspects of teaching in future innovative learning spaces.
