Just as we have preferences for our working conditions, we all have an individual learning space. That is the conditions that maximise our own learning. Things to consider include: lighting, noise, sensory aspects, physical aspects, seating, time allocation, types of tasks etc.
There are some excellent surveys available that help individuals think about their own learning habits. Handy Hint #4: Here is an online survey I found that might just help with thinking about individual learning spaces. http://www.edutopia.org/multiple-intelligences-learning-styles-quiz
One way to communicate your individual learning space preferences is to devise a personal taxonomy.
Or you could take a photo of the places you learn, in a week for instance, and analyse your favourite spaces.
