Experiences of Using and Opportunities to Use the New Learning Spaces at UNSW to Support Active & Collaborative Learning

Flipped Classroom Community of Practice

The Flipped Classroom CoP, in collaboration with the Piloting Active Learning Spaces (PALS) project, is organising an event to explore the development of new learning spaces at UNSW and their potential to facilitate active and collaborative learning, support innovation in learning and teaching, and enable diverse pedagogic practices (e.g., the flipped classroom approach).

The PALS project is a key initiative in developing world-class learning environments at UNSW. The project has produced a series of prototype spaces in the Mathews building for UNSW staff and students. The Learning Environments team is working with academic staff to gauge how these new learning spaces are being used. This will inform how UNSW develops and invests in these spaces in the future. We encourage academic staff to lodge their interest, and leverage the support and experiences of colleagues, as well as the academic development and technical support that is provided as part of this project.

The topics that will be covered in this meeting include:

  1.          an overview of the PALS project;
  2.          a panel discussion with staff and students currently using the spaces; and
  3.         an overview of the support provided and a break-out session for attendees to learn more about specific aspects of PALS, including topics on student experience, use of technology and screen sharing, room configuration and group work activities, teaching support, evaluation for future design, and development.
