Teaching Spaces

Introduction

Teaching space
CDU Teaching space

CDU has a variety of learning and teaching spaces that are fitted with innovative technologies and have layouts and furniture to foster student-centred learning through collaboration and active learning.

A basic minimum of technology has been provided in all the centrally timetabled rooms to promote flexible spaces and provide lecturers and students with more control over their teaching and learning.

Collaborate teaching spaces

The centrally timetabled Collaborate rooms (Red 6.1.01, 6.1.07, 6.1.08, 6.1.15, Blue 1.1.14, 1.1.35, 1.1.42, Orange 2.4.07, 6.2.07 and Yellow 1.1.39) are rooms specially set up with cameras and microphones to enable your external and internal students to engage in synchronous collaborative learning during your lectures and tutorials through the Learnline Collaborate software. Numerous other non-central spaces have been set up similarly.

The design of the collaborate spaces has been guided by the desire to achieve the following objectives:
