Creating the Digital Campus ACTIVE LEARNING SPACES and TECHNOLOGY
© Droitwich.net - 2017
Creating the Digital Campus explores how the Digital Classroom Roadshow pushed forward the engagement of stakeholders from across the campus (Academic Development, IT / AV, Estates, Timetabling, Space Management, etc.) to better ensure that these new spaces were focused on delivering facilities that make the greatest positive contribution to learning and teaching.  But new furniture and technology cannot by itself create the desired outcomes.  We must change the culture and delivery of learning; topics explored by Anne Llewellyn and Richard Sober and Tom Duff in their thought provoking contributions to the discussion. Dr Alastair D. Robertson - Director of Teaching and Learning Enhancement at Abertay University - provides a comprehensive insight into Active Learning Design, and explains how the Digital Classroom Roadshow that he and colleagues visited at Heriot-Watt University, helped their thinking for a cross-campus approach. Dr Rachael Foy, Anne Stevenson, Kelly Swallow and Dr Nicola Cannon from the Royal Agricultural University explore their student engagements with the Digital Classroom Roadshow during its four weeks tenure in Gloucestershire.      As the HE sector comes to terms with the newly introduced Teaching Excellence Framework, active learning spaces have been proven to help with student engagement, student retention, higher levels of academic attainment and the development of employability skills.

Higher Education sector-wide trends are influencing campus developments: Developments should be pedagogic-led with technology, estates and timetabling contributing a critical role in creating learning environments that support new pedagogic approaches. Active learning environments, such as the Digital Classroom that enable higher student engagements and improved learning outcomes, impact on room capacities and space utilisation levels.  New layouts will reduce capacity, but overall space utilisation dramatically improves as students use these spaces for self-directed learning outside of taught hours. Lecture theatres are experiencing transformations to large cohort spaces that can still be used didactically, but which also enable small-group collaborative learning modes. Developments, such as the Collaborative Wave, will utilise wireless collaborative technology to enable new pedagogic engagements. Technology isn’t standing still.  True innovation won’t happen if technology only substitutes traditional pedagogic engagements.  Technology offers far more digitally-rich opportunities than many people realise, but requires networks to enable it, not limit it, and intuitive implementations that academics have the confidence (and training) to use.   Historically, those responsible for campus networks have unwittingly held back many potential learning enhancements by not providing support for them.  In a new era of student-centric solutions across the campus, it’s now time for those in IT and AV to listen to and better understand the needs of academics and students, and to provide the necessary infrastructures to support students using these new digital tools.      In 2015, Jisc - the Government organisation providing digital solutions for UK education and research - supported the Digital Classroom Roadshow that provided a new hands-on engagement for universities and colleges exploring new active learning spaces.  Each roadshow venue lasted for 4 weeks, and provided the host with a fully configured wireless collaborative environment that would host many workshops, conversations and meetings as stakeholders from across the campus explored creating new active learning environments.     Unlike exhibitions and conferences on new learning spaces, the roadshow was an authentic new learning space that facilitated full connectivity and participation.
