More about our digital classrooms pilot

The Library has two digital classrooms for the 2017-18 academic year. They are pilot rooms, designed under the Future Learning Spaces project. This is a collaboration between Estates, UELT, Information Services and Timetabling.

The project supports the University Education and Student Experience Strategy.

We are exploring innovative teaching space design including:

  • active learning
  • new audio-visual technology
  • innovative furniture and writing surfaces
  • mobile device and BYOD (bring your own device) support
  • lecture capture
  • interactive voting systems.

16 academics have already taught in the rooms. At the end of the pilot, staff who have used the rooms will help us evaluate them. This will feed into future University-wide teaching space provision.
