The studio remains central in design education but has been severely tested during the emergency transition in design education during the global Covid-19 pandemic. This period highlighted problems and opportunities experienced in translating studio to online and distance modes of education, many of which arose because of the dramatic shift in use of space and time. By investigating how educators conceptualised space and time in descriptions around learning, it is possible to make visible some of our foundational assumptions in studio education practice. These assumptions are important to take account of as educators transition to whatever new normal may emerge in the next years. A series of theoretical points resulting in pragmatic suggestions are presented to enable educators to reflect and develop their teaching materials independently of mode of learning and teaching.
