Transforming our central teaching space

Exciting plans are underway for a state of the art £2.8m pilot programme to be delivered this summer that will redesign and refurbish our central teaching space.

We are currently consulting with staff and students and would like to hear your views.

The new proposed lecture theatres will transform our current facilities by offering a mix of collaborative teaching and learning space, and at the same time will contribute to the successful delivery of the University’s Digital Strategy for student education. The redesign of the lecture theatres will reflect best practice in furniture, equipment and use of digital technology.

The three lecture theatres in this pilot are: Dental Lecture Theatre, Worsley Building, Roger Stevens Lecture Theatre 8 and Mechanical Lecture Theatre B, Mechanical Engineering.

Dennis Hopper, Director of Facilities Management, said:“This is an exciting and innovative project with significant potential to transform the University’s teaching facilities and further improve collaborative teaching and learning at the University. Through the involvement and engagement of staff and students we can ensure we continue to transform our teaching spaces and become sector leading.”

The consultation will run until the end of April. If you would like to be involved or have any feedback, please email Liz Brittain
