  1. 1. Learning Space developments in Australian Universities CAUDIT Study Tour 2011 Photos courtesy of http:// www.flickr.com/photos/ munnerley/1
  2. 2. University of Queensland •  Experimental traditional lecture theatre & group rooms •  Deployed lots of technology •  Shared findings with the community •  Design can be constrained by physical room constraints •  Rooms designed before the ipad/tablets •  Moving away from all equipment in 1 room to shared infrastructure by many rooms/spaces2
  3. 3. Griffith University •  Focus on student centred learning – informal areas and pods •  Common Griffith Red design •  Use of Library as key social area and precinct •  Engineering challenges with technology and space constraints •  New ways to use media screens and digital signage3
  4. 4. Griffith University •  Use of precincts and centralised flexible student service areas that staff can cross train and students can access as one stop shop4
  5. 5. QLD University of Tech •  Rooms based on agnostic mobile technology solution accessing web based services •  Limited campus space dictates flexible room use & high utilisation •  Standard design principles for staff, students, postgrads5
  6. 6. QLD University of Tech •  Standard equipment and service apps lower training + support needs •  Use of external services like NVCS •  Able to support IPADs and other mobile devices to control rooms and use of software based solutions •  100+ mobile “moocows” wifi connected •  Video enabled rooms become gaming rooms out of hours6
  7. 7. Victoria University •  Different design themes for spaces and rooms •  Sourcing solutions via external vendors to create their spaces, 14 Cisco TP units for new learning spaces separately by curtains •  Legacy Tandberg systems remain and are interoperable with TP units •  Technology being used to connect multiple sites together and multiple learning spaces7
  8. 8. University of Melbourne •  Implementing 10 year "Melbourne plan" started 2008 •  Consolidating courses into 6 key areas "cohorts" focus on the on campus experience exclusively •  Emphasis on quality and on campus experience •  Leading design school on use of technology, design for teaching and learning outcomes8
  9. 9. University of Melbourne •  Implementing 10 year "Melbourne plan" started 2008 •  Consolidating courses into 6 key areas "cohorts" focus on the on campus experience exclusively •  Emphasis on quality and on campus experience •  Leading design school on use of technology, design for teaching and learning outcomes9
  10. 10. Key points •  There can be many stakeholders and opinions to manage within a “community of practice” model, often designs are retrofitted to space and other constraints •  Designs tend to be dictated by leader personality & behaviour with strong personality required to progress •  Most new spaces seem are experimental across small % rooms •  Standardisation is key to support and training in use of technology •  Few were aware of the AARNet services beyond the network •  Technology and design choices depend on university culture and goals, some want on campus experience, others want to connect multiple campuses, others want to connect students off campus10
  11. 11. Key points •  Expect classrooms to move to minimalism design as students and staff bring own devices that use virtual clients and servers solutions = more reliance on network based services •  Expect less dedicated equipment per room, more shared services on and off campus •  Media walls are becoming key across all universities for information and enlightenment, many reticulate free-to-air tv •  Some key library and content services are off.net and could be hosted locally. •  Teaching and Learning spaces developments are starting to rely on both ITS and AARNets network directly or indirectly, expect video to be part of the mix going forward and eduroam/wifi for interactions with technology so any disruptions may in the future be dramatic for these11 spaces.
