The new ‘E-learning Suite’ within The School of Clinical Medicine will be available to use from early-September 2017. It is hoped that the e-learning suite will permit more dynamic teaching styles, making the best use of emerging IT applications.
The full suite comprises of 84 workstations across 3 potentially-independent rooms. Each nest of workstations has a computer, BYOD functionality, 2 flat-screens on masts per nest, and can also be remotely controlled by the tutor from their lectern. The rooms are available for both undergraduate (clinical) and graduate (Masters, PhD) student teaching.
By default, the rooms within the E-learning suite are separated into three smaller rooms (capacities are 42, 24 and 18), but can be expanded depending on requirements. The two larger rooms are setup for teaching and the smaller room is a student study space (unless the rooms are opened). It is also possible to combine the rooms as a 2 (i.e. combine the 42 and 18 to make a capacity of 60, or combine the 24 and 18 to make another 42).
