4 reasons to attend

1. Experience the new collaborative classrooms for the first time

This is a chance to test drive our new collaborative classrooms before we open them to students next year (of up to 350 at any one time). All facilitators running sessions at the festival have designed their activities so that attendees can collaborate and experience first-hand how the space will run.

2. Build your skills in collaborative classroom design

Actively engage in collaborative learning designs – from across a number of faculties – and activities that you can adapt and use with your students. 

3. Network and share ideas

Meet academic colleagues and learning and teaching staff from across all of our faculties, as well as senior exec. All attendees are invited to attend the networking evening where lead architect, James Perry, will talk to the learning design for the space.

4. Help to inform how these new spaces will work for you and our students

Learn how you can use the space, share ideas and importantly take the opportunity to give feedback on the support you’ll need in using spaces like these in the future.
