Improving teaching spaces at Brookes

OCSLD is looking to start a small project with Estates and Facilities Management to improve classroom teaching spaces. We are hoping to work with some lecturers and students who use the same teaching rooms regularly to make small improvements in e.g. lighting, air conditioning, heating, servicing, furniture, and monitor how this influences how we can teach and how students participate. Perhaps you teach in a room where you have niggling frustration about the position of the light switches, or you’d like to change the furniture to make it easier to run groupwork.

If you are interested in being involved, please can you let me know.
