We’ve designed a campus around collaborative learning, a high touch learning experience Whatever can be done online should be and if students make the investment in time to come onto campus it should be a high quality highly interactive learning experience.

Watch the AARNet interview with Professor Shirley Alexander, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President (Education & Students) of the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS).  This is another video in our series of interviews with R&E sector leaders exploring the rise of network-enabled teaching and learning.

Professor Alexander talks about how UTS is reinventing teaching and learning, spending close to $1billion redesigning the campus for the future of learning. She also talks about the changing roles of the physical space and the academic, and the new skills and competencies that are improving the student experience.

Connectivity to AARNet’s high capacity and scalable network has enabled UTS to create a range of innovative new technology-enabled formal and informal collaborative learning spaces. AARNet connectivity also enables researchers to push boundaries without any network constraints, to explore and prototype new and emerging educational and technological resources and integrate online and face-to-face teaching and learning experiences in exciting new ways.
