The learning lab at An Lòchran, Inverness Campus, is an adaptable space designed to support a range of pedagogic research and development activities.
Colleagues from across the university can also use the facility to undertake their own pedagogic research and development activities, and for education-related workshops and events.
The lab is equipped with a range of educational tools and technologies and can be configured to simulate or support learning and teaching in classroom, blended and online contexts, and to support research in current and emerging areas of educational practice including:
- interactive classroom approaches
- distributed networked learning
- games-based learning
- immersion in simulated virtual environments.
The lab is also equipped to support observational research and evaluation activities both on site and remotely, and to provide a space for professional development activities and events (including teaching observations, practical workshops, and the prototyping and testing of pedagogic interventions, methods and educational resources by staff and students).
