Thu 5th Apr, 2007

JISC infoNet is pleased to announce the launch of its newest infoKit 'Planning and Designing Technology-Rich Learning Spaces':
http://www.jiscinfonet.ac.uk/infokits/learning-space-design.

It heralds a new style of infoKit, richly illustrated with case studies, images of buildings across the sector and a 'virtual tour' around an imaginary campus composed of spaces they find inspiring from a range of different institutions.

In the four sections:

- Anticipation
- Imagination
- Implementation
- Evaluation

They look at all aspects of creating your vision for the future and turning it into reality.

With Les Watson, creator of the Saltire Centre, as Lead Consultant they have worked with a range of people across the FE and HE sectors to illustrate the richness and diversity of developments in the sector.

The launch is only the start of the infoKit's development and they look forward to you contributing your feedback, images and examples.

JISC infoNet is also running an event jointly with the Centre for Excellence in Leadership on 'Leading a College New Build' on 24th April at New College Durham.

The sessions cover:

Foundations - hear directly from the LSC how it is laying the foundations for transforming our education sector.

Bricks and mortar - listen to the real-life experiences of leaders who have been through the pain of a new build and are willing to share lessons learned.

Scaffolding - find out about a range of new resources and networking activities for those leading these transformative projects.

Delegates will also have the opportunity to tour an award winning campus and participate in workshops.
