Teaching rooms in the Arts Building have been re-furbished with some new room layouts to make them particularly suitable for interactive teaching events.
To differentiate these rooms from standard traditional teaching room layouts we will refer to them as Active Learning Environments (ALEs).
The seminar furniture in the Enterprise Centre has been also chosen with flexibility in mind. The chairs and tables have wheels and the tables, which are circular with a crescent shaped indent, can be arranged in lines, groups or in a horseshoe shape and are sufficiently mobile to be moved around within a session.
