Abstract

Previous studies on Next Generation Learning Spaces (NGLS) concentrated mainly on their structural and financial aspects, with only limited research directed at practitioners and their practices. This qualitative study focused on practitioners' "lived" experiences while adapting their teaching in the NGLS environment. Given the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, data collection pivoted online, allowing the researcher to capture the trajectory of change that transpired. It highlighted three stages of a Change in Practice (CIP) process, namely, recognising, acknowledging and adjusting. The research outcomes comprise a transformative CIP theory and subsidiary propositions that are applicable to practitioners operating in NGLS.
