The benefits of adopting active learning approaches in HE are well documented. Many institutions would like to move from predominantly lecture-based didactic delivery methods to active teaching methods such as team-based learning or design-based learning. However the costs of building new learning spaces can be prohibitive whilst convincing busy staff to re-think their teaching approach is an unenviable task. This talk describes the journey to Swansea University’s first reconfigurable computer lab to active learning studio as an approach to solving both these issues and opening the doors to innovation and new programmes.
