Classroom & Learning Spaces Technology Showcase Day: 10th April 10:00 – 14:00

As part of our efforts to formulate plans for future teaching and learning space technology development we have invited several suppliers to demonstrate a range of new and innovative products for both staff and students. These are highly experienced suppliers who work extensively in Higher Education institutions throughout the UK.

Resident technology in these areas is continually emerging with an increasing emphasis on the ability to collaborate, receive and share content from any device with minimal fuss, this also includes new flexible furniture designs to better reflect class and group study scenarios.

Using feedback gained on this day and at other events we hope to develop new design models for room upgrades and new projects in order to better reflect your needs and aspirations.

We are inviting all staff and students to drop into the Peirson Study and Guidance Centre (St John’s Campus) on Friday April the 10th between 10:00 – 14:00.

Representative from each of the exhibiters will be available for you to talk to, and of course an opportunity to try out their products!
