London Met launches new pilot classrooms
London Met has created two new vibrant pilot classrooms in preparation for the creation of new teaching and learning spaces launching in January 2018. The project to create new suites and teaching and social learning facilities, known as the C Block project, is the first phase of One Campus, One Community (OCOC), which is seeing an investment of £125 million in the transformation of our Holloway campus.
New teaching spaces will be fitted out with the latest teaching technology and modern configurable classroom furniture to accommodate different teaching styles, group work activity and flexible independent learning.
Speaking to more than 300 students face-to-face, we asked what our students would like to see included in the designs for these spaces.
For our students, the following factors were the most important:
- group work spaces
- spaciousness and smart use of space
- modern and creative design
- more seating
- up-to-date technology
- more outlets for laptops and phones
In response to this feedback, the University has incorporated our students' ideas into the plans for the new teaching and learning facilities. Two pilot classrooms have been launched at our Holloway campus, with the latest interactive flat screen LCD monitors and modern configurable furniture for staff and students to test.
We want to give staff and students the opportunity to try out these spaces and provide feedback, which will be used to inform the overall design of our new spaces. The pilot classrooms are available for all lecturers and students to use and can be found in rooms T1-20 and TM1-45 at our Holloway campus.
Try them out and give us your feedback by leaving a note in the dropboxes provided.
