Changing the way faculty and students interact with Collaborative Classrooms
New state-of-the-art Collaborative Classrooms have been set up on the ground floor of the Plowden Building.
This flexible workspace, which is set up in different pods rather than rows, can accommodate up to 96 students and is designed to change the way students and faculty interact during lectures.
Each pod is equipped with two 32-inch monitors, which allow either a close-up view of the main lecture material being displayed at the front of the room or bespoke slides and information for individual groups. This function allows both lecturers and students to make annotations to individual screens, and students can also connect their laptops or personal devices to display on pod screens and the wider class.
The Collaborative Classrooms opened earlier this month and are already in use.
