BEARD, Colin (2012). Spatial ecology: learning and working environments that change people and organizations. In: ALEXANDER, Keith and PRICE, Ilfryn, (eds.) Managing organizational ecologies: space, management and organization. New York, Routledge, 69-80.Full text not available from this repository.
Purpose: Explores examples of leading edge corporate workspaces and innovative learning and development methods. Results: Advocates appreciating the complexities of the spatial relational dynamics of learning in driving new working practices Recommendations: As we concede the inadequacy of linear forms of communication, there is increasing recognition that spatial ecologies embracing mobility and flexibility can gear up individual and organizational learning Conclusions A ‘post kinetic’ lineage is evident as perceptual and motor-spatial metaphors pervade human conceptual language. The contemporary corporeal turn acknowledges this inheritance with the potential to liberate, or counter-intuitively impede, learning by people and organizations.
