Abstract

This workshop will begin with an overview of traditional learning and teaching environments, such as classrooms and lecture theatres, and the technology used within them. It will then provide a summary of the ‘work in progress’ findings from a Learning Landscapes project, undertaken with Architectural Technology and Management students during semester one of the 2015/16 academic year. One of the aims of the project was to investigate how technology can impact upon the learning space and learning approaches both now and in the future. The workshop will outline the approach taken and demonstrate the technology used; including both tablet and cloud based technology, and discuss how this impacted upon the teaching experience, from an academic perspective, and student learning and engagement. There will also be an opportunity for those in attendance to trial some of the technology discussed in the presentation to determine how it could be used within their own discipline areas.
