Rethinking Learning Spaces, May 2018Posted: 2 May, 2018
During May 2018, DIT will host a roadshow and a series of workshops, seminars and events designed to help determine what our future learning spaces might look like.
A month-long conversation about the digital transformation of education and the physical and cultural changes required to support educators
The Sticky Campus Roadshow is designed to offer a space and opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences of spaces, furniture, technology, acoustics, and strategies to support active learning pedagogies that achieve better learning outcomes and optimise space utilisation.
New technologies are influencing strategies for learning enhancement, the student experience, student recruitment, engagement and retention, and more. Learning spaces must change if they are to enable hands-on experiential models, critical thinking, and real-life simulations that connect learning to the highly digital world of work. From individual standalone hubs in libraries and social spaces to large cohort lecture-style rooms and reconfigured labs, what do these new collaborative learning spaces look like? And how should we incorporate them into short, medium and longer-term strategic developments?
All staff and students are welcome to drop into the following:
- Grangegorman (Rathdown House RD006) Tuesday 8th – Thursday 17th May
- Aungier Street (Room 3100) Monday 21st – Wednesday 30th May
