This plenary panel outlines educational designs underlying recent major building works at universities in Hong Kong and explores the extent changes have occurred in teaching and learning practices influenced by the affordances of new learning environments (LE). Each panel member will introduce LE designs and offer examples of hoped for and actual changed practices brought about by the affordances of the new environments. The respondent will collate key concepts and ideas introduced and will outline core tensions and challenges these new learning environments raise for universities, for staff and for students.
