Although the technologies and practices associated with teacher education are subject to constant evolution and occasional dramatic change, changes in program structures and implementation are seldom accompanied by opportunities to redesign the teaching and learning spaces. This paper will discuss the conceptualisation of twenty-first century teaching and learning spaces in a faculty that has the good fortune for a significant change in the teacher education program to be accompanied by funding for building refurbishment. Despite a strong imperative to incorporate information and communication technologies, the design approach was based on foregrounding pedagogy rather than technology through specifying required functionality before adopting technological solutions.
