To investigate student perceptions of the TFDL learning spaces, an study was conducted in winter 2016. The study involved: semi-structured interviews with 21 participants, roughly 45 minutes each, and included questions on:
•students’ learning styles,
•learning activities in the library
•locations in which they performed these activities and why
•their ideal learning space
•preferences based on 15 photos of TFDL spaces
The interview transcriptions were analyzed via open and axial coding, using NVivo software. Results are preliminary. Our poster highlights some student views on spaces in TFDL as they relate to their learning behaviours.
