In 2019, Durham University will be opening a brand new Teaching and Learning Centre. The Learning Centre will consist of modern classrooms, which use the latest technologies and equipment to enhance the learning environment.
In addition to the new classrooms, there will be lecture theatres, student learning zones, teaching labs and catering facilities. In this Learning Centre, students will be given the opportunity to share academic courses in real time with other students enrolled at universities from around the world. This exciting project will enable students to connect and work with peers internationally, in regular and structured sessions.
This GBP40 million development started construction in December 2017 and is due to be completed in September 2019, ready for the start of the academic year. Once completed, the Learning Centre will also provide a space to host meetings and conferences outside of the normal teaching hours and term times. These will also be available to book by external parties within the Durham area.
Using the latest technology, Durham University has created a strategy that promises to deliver high quality, research-led teaching to challenge and enlighten students by 2027.
