Creating   the   Digital   Campus     explores    how    the    Digital Classroom     Roadshow     pushed     forward     the     engagement     of stakeholders   from   across   the   campus   (Academic   Development,   IT   / AV,   Estates,   Timetabling,   Space   Management,   etc.)   to   better   ensure that   these   new   spaces   were   focused   on   delivering   facilities   that make the greatest positive contribution to learning and teaching.  But   new   furniture   and   technology   cannot   by   itself   create   the   desired outcomes.        We    must    change    the    culture    and    delivery    of learning ;   topics   explored   by   Anne   Llewellyn   and   Richard   Sober   and Tom Duff in their thought provoking contributions to the discussion. Dr    Alastair    D.    Robertson    -    Director    of    Teaching    and    Learning Enhancement    at    Abertay    University    -    provides    a    comprehensive insight   into   Active   Learning   Design ,   and   explains   how   the   Digital Classroom   Roadshow   that   he   and   colleagues   visited   at   Heriot-Watt University, helped their thinking for a cross-campus approach. Dr    Rachael    Foy,    Anne    Stevenson,    Kelly    Swallow    and    Dr    Nicola Cannon   from   the   Royal   Agricultural   University   explore   their   student engagements    with   the   Digital   Classroom   Roadshow   during   its   four weeks tenure in Gloucestershire.

As   the   HE   sector   comes   to   terms   with   the   newly   introduced   Teaching   Excellence   Framework ,   active   learning   spaces   have   been   proven   to   help with student engagement, student retention, higher levels of academic attainment and the development of employability skills. Higher Education sector-wide trends are influencing campus developments: Developments   should   be   pedagogic-led   with   technology,   estates   and   timetabling   contributing   a   critical   role   in   creating   learning   environments   that support new pedagogic approaches. Active   learning   environments,   such   as   the   Digital   Classroom   that   enable   higher   student   engagements   and   improved   learning   outcomes,   impact on   room   capacities   and   space   utilisation   levels.      New   layouts   will   reduce   capacity,   but   overall   space   utilisation   dramatically   improves   as   students   use these spaces for self-directed learning outside of taught hours. Lecture   theatres   are   experiencing   transformations   to   large   cohort   spaces   that   can   still   be   used   didactically,   but   which   also   enable   small-group collaborative   learning   modes.   Developments,   such   as   the   Collaborative   Wave,   will   utilise   wireless   collaborative   technology   to   enable   new   pedagogic engagements. Technology   isn’t   standing   still.      True   innovation   won’t   happen   if   technology   only   substitutes   traditional   pedagogic   engagements.      Technology offers   far   more   digitally-rich   opportunities   than   many   people   realise,   but   requires   networks   to   enable   it,   not   limit   it,   and   intuitive   implementations   that academics have the confidence (and training) to use.   Historically,   those   responsible   for   campus   networks   have   unwittingly   held   back   many   potential   learning   enhancements   by   not   providing   support   for them.      In   a   new   era   of   student-centric   solutions   across   the   campus,   it’s   now   time   for   those   in   IT   and   AV   to   listen   to   and   better   understand   the   needs of academics and students, and to provide the necessary infrastructures to support students using these new digital tools.      In   2015,   Jisc   -   the   Government   organisation   providing   digital   solutions   for   UK   education   and   research   -   supported   the   Digital   Classroom   Roadshow   that provided   a   new   hands-on   engagement   for   universities   and   colleges   exploring   new   active   learning   spaces.      Each   roadshow   venue   lasted   for   4   weeks, and   provided   the   host   with   a   fully   configured   wireless   collaborative   environment   that   would   host   many   workshops,   conversations   and   meetings   as stakeholders   from   across   the   campus   explored   creating   new   active   learning   environments.               Unlike   exhibitions   and   conferences   on   new   learning spaces, the roadshow was an authentic new learning space that facilitated full connectivity and participation.
