Learning Spaces update - Summer 2017

Over the Summer we’ve been carrying out works to various rooms to improve the facilities and enhance the teaching and learning experience.

Lecture Theatre V/N/045

This is a 200 seat lecture theatre located in Vanbrugh College, and we’ve given it a major overhaul this summer. After listening to your feedback, the room has new seating, flooring, lighting, AV equipment (including dual data projection), and an upgrade to the ventilation, so the room should no longer be hot & stuffy. A new hearing loop, and powered access door will assist with accessibility.

The room is nearly completed, we’ve just got the lectern to fit, and a few bits of finishing off.
Some additional work is already planned for the Christmas vacation to add extra lighting controls, and different lighting.

Lecture Theatre P/X/001

We’ve updated the AV equipment - the old clunky boards have been replaced with new lightweight column boards. Based on the recent feedback, we’re also providing two options for boards that can be captured with Replay - the Replay+ camera system that’s been installed in P/L/001 & P/L/002, and the digital OHP table that’s in Spring Lane lecture theatre.
Dual screens

Dual data projectors and large screens complement the new lectern. In a behind the scenes technological change - the audio and video are both transmitted over the network, rather than requiring dedicated AV cabling. We’re grateful to our friends in IT services for their help and expertise in setting this up.
New Projectors

New boards and lectern

Lecture Theatres ATB/056 & 057

Over the past few years, these rooms have been used as one large space. For the next academic year, these rooms will be split into two separate rooms. Again, we’re fitting new dual projection to each room, along with new lecterns, sound system, and a permanent visualiser in response to frequent requests in this space.

This room has been upgraded and now has our standard set of equipment with a new projector, lectern, supported PC, and lecture capture.

After years of being used for other purposes, this room is being brought back as a teaching room. It will have the standard set of equipment with a new projector, lectern, supported PC, and lecture capture, along with a new carpet, a hearing loop and some decoration.
