3:30 PM Workshop C: Improving the Student Experience through Learning Space Design

Rising fees, emerging technology and the introduction of new frameworks has created an environment where students expect more from the investment. As they start to behave more like consumers, pressure is applied to the HE sector to adapt and evolve their offerings to remain competitive and ensure they attract, retain and engage students throughout their entire journey. This workshop will focus on improving experience through new teaching methods and emerging technology in both physical and virtual spaces.

By participating in this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Create an environment that will effectively support the student journey and improve engagement and experience
  • Leverage technology and teaching methods to enhance student engagement
  • Capture qualitative and quantitative data from students
  • Foster active learning and social interaction
  • Assess, interpret and apply key findings to improve existing learning spaces
  • Develop new pilot learning spaces that support best practice in teaching, learning, and campus planning
