The University's vision of learning space for the 21st century is a student-centred, quality assured, seamless environment encompassing physical and virtual networks that promote engaged enquiry. To achieve this, the Office of the DVC(Education) is leading a project on learning space standards. Standards for learning and teaching space (both physical and virtual) are shaped by iterative evaluation from student, staff and faculty feedback. They are conceived of in relation to expectations of the educational function provided by the spaces and are based on best practice internationally.
The University Learning Space Strategy is informed by annual feedback from faculties through ICT Technology Plan activities, feedback from the Learning Space Program, student learning space surveys and international benchmarks with our international universities. These contribute to a student-centred and informed view on learning and teaching space at the University.
The standards for learning and teaching space aim to equity and sustainable innovation across all our faculties. In partnership with CIS and ICT, the standards are available through the links below. They are live standards, subject to change from our capital planning, transformational projects and other key initiatives pursued by the University in this space.
Please note that the structure and documentation provided on these pages is draft and subject to variation over the next 18 months while the university community provides feedback on the transformational builds occurring and the responses to the University Technology Plan.
