The TEL & AV Team would firstly like to express thanks to those members of staff who completed our survey last year. Your feedback has been extremely useful and has provided input for the improvements we have made this year – see the highlights below. As we continue to make improvements to the AV facilities in our teaching spaces, it is important that we again obtain your feedback to ensure that what we are providing is meeting your needs. We would be grateful if you would take a few minutes to complete our Teaching & Learning Facilities Survey 2018. The survey will be open until 31st July, 2018.
Below are a few highlights of the work carried out since last year’s survey. If you would like to see a summary of the feedback from staff please see: Teaching & Learning Facilities Survey 2017 – Results.
- In-house AV upgrades continue to be carried out by the team. These are receiving positive feedback from staff although they do highlight the poor quality of legacy equipment in rooms that have not yet been upgraded. The ongoing schedule of complete and scheduled upgrades is available here: AV Upgrades. The most significant changes to teaching spaces this year have been in Miller G05 and Allen Lab G09 (carried out as part of an E&F project to provide more flexible teaching spaces). Ongoing funding continues to be sought in order that teaching spaces are refreshed on a regular basis.
- We have carried out a number of departmental AV installations in the following areas:
- London Road
- Polly Vacher G35
- Graduate School
- Harry Nursten
- We have provided an online interactive guide for staff who would like to set up an online meeting using Skype for Business.
- VoIP phones are being installed in all centrally managed teaching spaces. So far these have been rolled out in Chancellor’s, Edith Morley and Agriculture.
