Abstract

The issue of healthy environments for learning became a focal point in a peer research group at a university, where a change of physical meeting place galvanized a discussion about losing and finding spaces in which to know and learn. This paper presents a ‘postcard’ conversation exploring in presentational forms our experiences of these places as students and scholars. We present this as an example of an arts-based methodology giving rise to themes of neglected ways of knowing and learning, and the yearning for spaces for creativity and collaboration. We offer representations of and reflections on experience in order to further discussion about what it means for universities to be healthy settings for students and staff in the age of academic entrepreneurship.
