Biographical details

Martin Parisio is a Postgraduate Fellow and PhD candidate at the Centre for Research on Computer Supported Learning and Cognition (CoCo) at the University of Sydney, Australia. He is a member of Peter Goodyear’s ARC Laureate Project team (Learning, technology and design: architectures for productive networked learning) and the Sydney Sciences and Technologies of Learning Research Network. Martin’s PhD research is an exploration of university built environments and designed spaces, examining designers’ intentions, beliefs and attitudes towards effective architectural and spatial design for autonomous learning. His research interests include design for learning, educational technology, language education, systems thinking and pedagogy. He is an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) scholarship recipient. Martin has taught educational technology in K–12 school settings, for regional professional development courses and in pre-service teacher education courses in higher education.

Current projects

  • Martin's research investigates the ways designers of innovative learning spaces incorporate customisable, (re)configurable and flexible features that support and encourage student autonomy, self-regulation and sense of ownership. The research involves 17 learning spaces from seven universities, and observations and interviews with architects, interior designers, and educational stakeholders of those spaces.
