Arts Pilot Rooms – Evaluation!

In September 2017, the University appointed external consultants, HLM Architects, to undertake a review and analysis of the University’s existing learning and teaching spaces. This review was concluded in February 2018 with a final outcome report. Following publication of the report, it was agreed that some of the recommendations should be implemented and tested with a refurbishment pilot project during the summer of 2018. Teaching rooms and associated learning spaces were identified in the Arts Building, and these were re-developed and became operational in September 2018. We are now taking the opportunity to evaluate these developments with both staff and students. As well as informing future development at St Andrews, this work forms part of the University’s contribution to the QAA Enhancement Theme: Evidence for Enhancement.

If you would like to help us by providing your feedback on the rooms, you can do so here:

New TELStA Space coming!

Next semester will see the launch of new space for TELStA activities in the Gateway Building (formerly Seminar Rooms 4 & 5 in the basement of the building). This will be a specially developed and supported space where staff can come and try out new technologies to enhance their teaching, on their own or with small groups of students. Watch this space for more news on this exciting development!

We’re looking for a name for the TELStA space – you can make your suggestions here.

All our technologies are designed to support one or more of the learning activities described here.

Here’s a taste of one of the technologies you’ll be able to try out: the SmartKapp mobile whiteboard.
