With Sue Holmes, AUDE & Oxford Brookes University
The world is undergoing huge changes in the way we work, communicate, live and learn.
The education sector, not immune to these changes, has to adapt to the latest technological developments, respond to cuts in funding, and meet evolving student expectations. To remain successful, universities must understand how to teach the next generation of students.
This will mean taking a careful look at what space is used for, and what it could also, or alternatively be used for, in order to gain the maximum from existing space.
In this session a senior member of AUDE presents findings from the new AUDE report on learning environments and how to build today for students coming to us in ten years’ time.
Sue Holmes is recognised as an expert on university space management, developing innovative spaces which create flexible and interesting areas in which to develop teaching and learning, and on issues related to effective use of space and good design in UK Higher Education and has spoken nationally and internationally on this subject. Sue took up the Chair of AUDE at the 2015 April AGM and her term of office was one year, before moving to immediate past chair. The role of AUDE is vitally important in times of change and challenge. Delivering innovative solutions across estates and facilities demonstrates sector improvements illustrated by the AUDE EMR annual report and the evidence in Diamond 2.
