We’re seeing industry moving on to campus, Universities moving into the CBD and with an increasing focus on preparing students for the uncertain jobs market we’re seeing the blurring between workplace and learning environments. Facilities are being developed so that they don’t resemble traditional classrooms and aim to simulate contemporary workplaces. This creates student led spaces and encourages students to build different skill sets which will be advantageous to them in the future. Many of these ideas are captured in the multi-staged Macquarie University Project.
In this Session…
- Creating an on-campus academic community
- Preparing students for the future job market
- Benefits of blurring the boundaries
- Enticing industry onto campus
