A CAMPUS CHAMPION

Whilst student outcomes are the key driver, Digital

Classrooms also provide many benefits for universities and

colleges, they:

Enhance the student experience as a supportive learning environment Raise academic achievements by developing a deeper understanding of subjects and concepts Accelerate acquisition of transferable skills relevant to employment Improve space utilisation as rooms can be used more intelligently Reduce drop-out rates, thereby strengthening income streams

DEFINING SUCCESS

How do we ensure that the spaces we build or transform are successful?  And what percentage of any success is just down to the space itself?  And how exactly should we define ‘successful’ when it comes to any learning space or the activities that take place within?   If we agree that the most successful spaces are those in which a student has obtained a higher grade compared to being taught in an alternative space with the same or a different pedagogy, then which aspects of the space can we accurately attribute the improvements in student attainment to?    Does the furniture, the layout, the technology, or the teaching skills of the tutor leading the learning provide the greatest input when creating learning environments where students are asking, talking, and reaching the answers for themselves amongst a vibrant culture of discovery?

ENABLING BETTER INFORMED DECISIONS

Most product showcases don’t provide an authentic environment or give you the time to make informed  decisions about new - essential - developments;  that all changes with the Digital Classroom Roadshow. Jisc, together with a small number of commercial suppliers, are supporting a series of regional roadshows across the UK that will provide a completely different experience. This isn’t a classroom of the future; this is a classroom of now.  This is a Digital Classroom that will provide you ideas and experiences of furniture, technology, acoustics, and more to support active learning pedagogies that deliver better learning outcomes and maximise space utilisation.
