We are very pleased to announce that HEDQF is partnering with UCL’s MSc Learning Environments programme to award a student prize this year.
The prize will go to the best student research essay on the implications of digital learning for the design of university estates in the UK. This is particularly relevant during the pandemic, as HE institutions pivot towards new virtual-physical hybrid arrangements for teaching and learning. Essays will be judged during May 2021, with the selected winner showcased on the HEDQF website.
Emerita Professor for Learning Environments, Alexi Marmot said “this is a truly excellent idea, at exactly the right time for asking questions about how educational estates need to adapt long-term integrating virtual and face-to-face learning.”
Julian Robinson, on behalf of HEDQF, said “students can be co-creators of future learning environments, this partnership with the Bartlett will give students a chance of having their research ‘showcased’ and bringing new insights on the design of these spaces”
