Abstract [en]

This essay is written about how the physical environment affects teachers’ own learning. The purpose is to see how the teachers’ work is affected by various factors, such as the uses and placement of the teachers’ offices, common room, or any other places where a meeting may occur. The survey was conducted using both interviews and observations of the teacher’s office. For the analysis of both the interviews and the observations we used Design for Learning by Rostvall and Selander (2008).

The paper concludes that the physical environment influences learning in many ways. The design of the office and its distance from the common room had an impact on how teachers socialized with each other which is essential for learning to occur. Furthermore, there are other aspects that affect the teachers in how learning can take place in their office, such as how well the Internet works or the noise levels around it.

The discussion in the paper is about the importance of teacher’s learning and further development, but also how this study can be applied to other professions.
