Lecture learning spaces
Lecture spaces are designed to support didactic approaches for instructors teaching large student cohorts.
The discursive theatre brings instructors closer to their students.
There are a variety of lecture spaces throughout the university. These include theatres, cinemas, lectorials, discursive and interactive lecture spaces.
- Interactive and discursive spaces include the ability to move relatively freely throughout the space and allow for student-student and teacher-student engagement and conversation.
- Lectorial spaces are designed to encourage student engagement in large classes. They allow for the integration of the traditional instructor-led lecture model with the tutorial style engaged and collaborative learning.
- Lecture theatres have sophisticated AV and IT facilities and some have a variety of informal breakout spaces, providing additional space for collaborative or team-based learning.
