Learning Networks Project
The University aspires to embrace learning spaces that realign learning, teaching, research and knowledge, whilst supporting our commitment to excellence in the student experience.
In semester one 2012, the University's new learning hubs were opened, immediately improving the physical and virtual learning and teaching spaces on the Camperdown/Darlington campuses.
Funding was provided by the Federal Government through its Teaching and Learning Capital Fund (TLC) with a significant co-contribution from the University. The Federal Government also provided funding through its Better Universities Renewal Funding (BURF) for the Fisher Library component of the Learning Networks Project.

The on-going redevelopment of the Fisher Library and the learning hubs already open in the Carslaw and PNR buildings are the first of a series of interlinked learning hubs across the campus that will improve the quality of our facilities, whilst maximising communication and collaboration.
The learning hubs contain group, pair and individual facilities, integrated with technology to provide learning spaces for students who are studying in between and around their formal classes.
Along with the development of the learning hubs, the TLC project will also include the following improvements throughout the campus:
- a formal seminar space for group work and collaborative learning with integrated technologies on the first floor of the PNR building
- an upgrade to the Fisher Library
- a shared space in the Wallace Building for the provision higher degree research seats
The virtual desktop project, also linked to the Learning Networks Project, will improve the service and suitability of learning specific technologies. It is part of a broader strategy investigating different models for providing student-centred technology support.
These projects are led through the DVC (Education) portfolio in collaboration with Campus Infrastructure and Services, Information Communication Technology, the University Library and Sydney eLearning.
