London Festival of Architecture | New Ways that Students Work

MJP Architects are hosting an informal evening of discussion for the London Festival of Architecture:

New Ways that Students Work | The Impact on the Campus and City

Monday 1 June 2015, 6pm – 8.30pm
The Factory 16-18 Heneage Street, London E1 5LJ

The event will focus on new ways that students work and the impact on the design of the university campus and the city.

Please RSVP info@mjparchitects.co.uk

There has been a significant change over recent years in the way that teaching and learning takes place in universities and in the way that students work. This is the result of new technologies, increase in student numbers and changing student expectations arising from increased student fees.

Technology is a constant part of students’ daily lives – study and socialising are inter-twined. Learning takes place in a wide range of settings – cafes and social spaces, found spaces, indoors and outside, as well as in the traditional settings of library, lecture theatre and seminar room.

Opportunities for knowledge exchange are key to learning and research. Universities are becoming more inclusive, opening their buildings and campuses to the wider community.

Speakers from different backgrounds will give their views in a pacy and informal PechaKucha discussion, where each speaker presents 20 slides for 20 seconds each.

Speakers include:

Ian Caldwell, King’s College London
Sarah Shalgosky, University of Warwick
Chris Churchman, Churchman Landscape Architects
Fiona Duggan, FiD
Zachery Spire, Institute of Education, UCL
Michael Ritchie, MJP Architects

MJP would be delighted if you could join us. Please send an email to info@mjparchitects.co.uk to request a ticket.

There is no charge for this event
