12th - 16th April 2021

AUDE Conference 2021

Join Russell Day, Education Sector Head and a group of experts who will discuss the future of large learning spaces.

With education going virtual during the pandemic, large learning spaces have been left empty. So what does the future hold?

How might large learning spaces evolve in the future? Seven experts, seven perspectives and each with 225 seconds of clarity and insight.

The demand for and use of large learning spaces is constantly evolving. Some of the key factors that are causing this transformation include changes in pedagogy and digital technologies. And, over the last year, the impact of Covid-19 has made the discussion about their future use even more immediate.

To reflect on these changes, we’ve assembled seven academics and industry experts. Each will use PechaKucha, a rapid and dynamic presentation technique (15 slides and only 15 seconds each). The upshot is that the audience will get a rapid distillation of insightful information in a concise and fast-moving format.

We’ve given each speaker the freedom to take this topic in whatever direction they wish: this will include changes in pedagogy, innovative uses of space and an exploration of those things that might be fundamental to large learning spaces of the future.

So what does the future hold? Join us for an exhilarating and thought-provoking hour.
