  • Abstract

Third space refers to the co-created hybrid spaces that bring people together, similar to how Coronavirus-related disruption has brought people 'together apart'. In the education context, it can be described as the 'in-between' space attempting to integrate binaries and open-up new possibilities for re-articulation of identity, learning and knowledge. This article provides a perspective on embracing classroom diversity by crossing the boundaries and intersection between the teacher/learner role, theoretical/practical knowledge, on-campus/online learning and STEM/humanities discipline. Strategies for creating third space are inclusive of teaching and learning, such as the student agency, students as partners, inquiry as stance, HyFlex model, curriculum integration, which are briefly discussed. Third spaces in teaching and learning also serve as a bridge, navigational and transformational space which can transform a linear classroom lesson into a more vibrant environment for effective learning.
