Open Space Learning is an approach that encourages active physical participation in spaces without tables and chairs. For more information about Open Space Learning, see the project web site at http://go.warwick.ac.uk/openspacelearning The workshop is the basic unit in pedagogic interaction between facilitator and participant in OSL. The following section offers examples of a variety of workshop activities that can be adapted easily for use across the disciplines in Higher Education. Each activity is designed so that it does not demand intensive use of resources, and can be facilitated by anyone with teaching responsibilities in the sector.
