Flipping the Classroom - Planning the Learning Design: Jisc UK Digital Classroom Roadshow

Fiona Mc Cloy, Aine Mac Neill, Richard Beggs

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


With many HE and FE institutions considering the greater use of active learning pedagogies, the Digital Classroom
Roadshow was conceived as a facility that would allow a greater number of people across the campus to have hands-on
experience of a fully equipped digital learning space, so that better informed decisions regarding future acquisitions and
investments could be made by all stakeholders. These include; Learning and Teaching, Academic Development, Estates,
Timetabling, IT and AV, and the Student Experience.
Whilst the roadshow required furniture and technology selections to be made that would be used throughout the project,
it was explained that there was no attempt to say that the roadshow configuration was the only solution. Different
pedagogical requirements must be enabled by the correct selection of furniture and technology, and not constrained by it.
Workshops, presentations and discussions during the roadshow would allow stakeholders to consider different furniture
and technology configurations that also support the use of dual pedagogies (Active Learning and Didactic) in the same
space without the need to reconfigure furniture for either to be achieved.
