The new Fusion1 building is taking shape on Talbot campus and will see students being taught there for the first time in September 2016. Far more than solely a new building with extra lecture and seminar rooms, the plan is that BU should develop an innovative philosophy for teaching and learning to make Fusion1 a new and exciting experience for staff and students.
It is planned that three new cross-faculty master’s programmes will be delivered in the Fusion1 building.
CEL is working with Prof Iain MacRury and his teams to provide input to the teaching and learning for Fusion1. We held the first of a number of workshops yesterday and in a busy series of presentations and interactive activities covered a wide range of topics and perspectives including trends in digital education, innovative thinking, curriculum design and the feedback of students.
After the meeting Prof MacRury commented “the CEL input into this work is invaluable. I think it has galvanised the participants and will focus minds on producing stronger courses”.
The processes, tools and materials being developed to support Fusion1 have an application that is far wider than Fusion1 and will be used to inform teaching and learning across BU.
The Fusion1 is a very exciting project and it is developing quickly in the run up to September 2016. We will keep you informed of developments.
