On campus teaching is critically dependent on physical locations - laboratories, art and design studios, and theatres, whilst the student experience is affected by the social spaces, the libraries, and access to computer suites and maker spaces - how can we effectively deliver authentic, participatory and connected learning experiences for students who are unable to return to campus due to on-going or intermittent travel or health restrictions?
