Upgraded rooms will see the introduction of the latest AV technology, including an ‘on air’ button in lecture recording rooms so that staff can stop and start recording lectures if required. Additional audio support will also be implemented, with mics covering the front of teaching areas to improve audio quality.
The works are part of a long-term collaboration between Information, Management and Technology, Estates and the Teaching and Learning Centre to enhance and expand existing campus spaces in consultation with the LSE community.
By April 2019, 160 rooms will have been positively impacted, with 91 upgraded rooms in 2018/19, including the introduction of lecture recording in all spaces with a capacity above 25. Increased resources will be available in Learning Technology and Innovation to support the increase in lecture recording.
Andrew Young, Chief Operating Officer said of the works:
“I am delighted that IMT, Estates and TLC are partnering to deliver dynamic, collaborative spaces across campus to match the exceptional teaching and learning taking place across our School.”
“All activity is being delivered with the input of students and staff, and I look forward to seeing this programme of works completed alongside the new Centre Buildings by the end of the year, as well as ongoing upgrades to learning spaces on a rolling basis as part of our 10 year improvement plan.”
