Self-organized learning environment considered as a contemporary concept that directed toward
transform the education system from traditional environment architecture to scalable
environment which could be formed by students and teachers. Descriptions components of this
environment are varied in previous studies, constraining some time on intellectual side or on
physical side or on behavioral side. Most of them describe teaching approaches between
traditional and contemporary one, but there is lake in determining the nature on interaction
between learner and teacher within specific physical learning spaces. The research problem is
"Lack of knowledge about interactive relationship between self-organized learning
environments components-intellectual, physical and social- and in particular physical role
in promoting interaction between the learners within these environments". Research
methodology consists of three steps. first establish theoretical framework about characteristics of
self-organized learning environment and identify the items if interaction between learner .Second
applied these items on case study consist of two different learning environments in department of
architecture in technological university, traditional and non-traditional and using questioners
methods, third, analyze finding and draw conclusions .main conclude is self-organized learning
environment is a scalable interactive environment compering with traditional one according to
learning approaches that applied in them.
