"The room layouts in The Fusion Building aren’t good for group work and discussions"
SUBU’s SimOn tool (2017/18)
"We trialled a new interactive layout and asked for your feedback. This has now been used throughout many seminar rooms in the building."
In February 2018, in response to feedback shared with Student Reps, we asked students for more information on how the room layouts in the Fusion Building impacted your learning and ability to engage in your seminars. We set up alternative layouts in three of our seminar rooms and asked for your feedback. The result is a move away from traditional rows, to a horseshoe style format which allows for more interactive learning for all participants, including those presenting and leading the sessions.
