Peter Green gave an illuminating talk on his experience as the Teaching and Learning Academic Lead for the Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD) project. As part of the project he considered ways to optimise the 191 teaching rooms in MECD to ensure they were fit for purpose in the current climate, for example, considering the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the move to learning anywhere/anytime and enhancing student creativity.
Peter encountered divided opinion with some stakeholders not willing to diminish their discipline identity whilst others wished to create a cross-disciplinary community. For the full presentation, please listen to the podcast which can be viewed below:
