impact on:

•teaching spaces
•staff offices
convert under-used
academic space into
teaching space?
academic hot desks?
(academic contractors?)
impact on:

•teaching spaces
•decreasing lecturing

•increasing team work
resistance to
building flexible
teaching spaces -
the bums on seats
mentality
flexible teaching
spaces take up more
room but get used
more therefore in
the long run cost the
university less
impact on:

•student labs
pervasive technology means:
•computing is not a
    separate space
•integrated into existing
    spaces (larger, flexible)
•spaces not previously
    viewed as classrooms eg
    cafes and gardens
will we respond to
the potential of the
revolution?
will we take up the
challenge to
re-engineer
university practices?
