ABOUT: LEARN FROM ANYWHERE Duncan Peberdy has been involved with digital technology for Higher Education since 2006 when he worked for a leading US company providing collaboration solutions to the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at the University of Nottingham. Since 2015, Duncan has managed the highly successful Digital Classroom and Sticky Campus roadshows that have run throughout the UK and bits of Europe. These roadshows, Duncan’s idea, took active learning classrooms fully configured with off-the-shelf displays, wireless collaborative hardware, software and technical furniture. They have assisted universities and colleges to develop their small group active collaborative learning that improves student experiences and raises academic outcomes. “We are now creating two active learning studios, one at each campus, that will be available for teaching in October. This has involved a cross- functional team that came together to host the Sticky Campus Roadshow and I do not think we would be in this position for at least another 2-3 years, if at all, without Duncan’s efforts and influence.” Professor Paul Holland, Head of the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Centre Swansea University The Digital Classroom Roadshow “has been a critical initiative in support of our strategic Learning Landscape Change Programme, inspiring a range of innovative interdisciplinary Active Learning Projects across all faculties, which are already delivering positive student evaluations of these digital learning spaces.” Professor Diane Hazlett, Director of the Centre for Higher Education Research & Practice Ulster University With contributions from a Director of Library Services, Director of Academic Enhancement and Director of the Learning Sciences Research Institute, together with many technology experts, Duncan has published two well received books; Active Learning Spaces and Technology (2014) and Creating the Digital Campus (2017). Duncan has also authored two books on business meetings published by Pearson. Duncan’s vision for Remote and Hybrid classrooms, essential for equipping students with a new excellence in remote learning, blends with and builds on existing on-campus learning, and brings emotional, cognitive and interactive engagements to synchronous online learning. The Visual Learning Lab is substantially less expensive than existing bespoke Virtual Classrooms, and offers the flexibility to use existing software such as Microsoft Teams™ and Zoom™ to immediately adapt and embrace more effective distance learning, with the opportunity to develop solutions specifically designed for learning and teaching. Developed in conjunction with leading technology companies including Intel and ViewSonic, the Visual Learning Lab will be available for campus installations this summer, in time to provide your students learning remotely with a greater sense of belonging to your institution, and creating a hybrid learning space to assist with the phased return of students to campus whilst social distancing restrictions are in place.
