A pleasant and comfortable environment where you can express your emotions, openly express concern, share deep thoughts and not least broaden your horizon and learn new skills and mindsets, is crucial for any business, organization, team or instruction.
Ground-breaking and life-changing ideas that disrupt normality, simply doesn’t happen with ideas and thoughts that are ‘middle of the road’. To drastically change something, you need ideas that are challenging, radical and maybe even provocative. To express such ideas, a safe learning space is required.

What is a safe learning space?

A safe learning space is a space in which people are given the confidence to create together, share ideas and thoughts and explore different models of learning. The purpose is to foster creativity, innovation and risk-taking.
A safe learning space is also place in which the participants feel secure enough to take risks, express their views and share and explore their knowledge, attitudes, mindsets and behaviors.

Why is it important to create a safe learning space?

For learning to occur, boundaries have to be pushed. And for boundaries to be pushed, one has to feel safe and secure. Therefore, creating a safe learning space is crucial for any business, organization or lecturer who wish to expand the creative and innovative capacity of the team or learners.
A safe learning space is especially important for instruction, as the educator needs a safe environment to engage and inspire the learners.

Learn how to create a safe learning space

Unfortunately, a safe learning space doesn’t just appear out of nowhere. It needs to be facilitated.
As a lecturer, establishing a relationship with the learners is a great first step towards creating a safe learning space. Make sure that the learners know that you are there to help and guide them. Listen to them when they share their ideas and stories, and try to take in new information without judgment and keep an open mind.
However, there is much more to creating a safe learning space than just establishing a relationship with the learners. Creating a safe learning space is also about maturity, epistemology, learning culture and style, as well as how to engage, inspire, and deliver content to the learner, and much more.
