Introducing The Concept Suite in Nicola de la Haye NDH3028

"…blurring the boundaries between disciplines, between formal and informal learning, and between learning and creative practice."

A new innovative digitally enhanced active learning space for up to 25 students

Guiding principles for the room

  • Encourage dispersed group teaching
  • Provide flexible focus points
  • Support active learning
  • Blur sense of ‘presence’ virtually and physically
What's available?
