As the student and faculty demographics continue to change and evolve, new technology and emerging teaching pedagogies are also shifting the instructional landscape. The University must respond by providing a greater range of options within our teaching inventory. The traditional method of space allocation has now evolved to recognise and support this diverse and complex range of program offerings delivered by the University. Because of this new system, the University can now expand the range of spaces to within the inventory to match those needs.

Direct engagement with students and instructors is a fundamental component of this project, and is driving this initiative's roll out. ACE's Classroom Design Group has connected directly with instructors teaching in the classroom, as well as with the Innovation Hub at Student Life, in order to better understand students' needs in the classroom. ACE is working with divisions to identify specific focus groups to help clarify the elements critical to faculty. Feedback will inform the design process, and ensure the project directly responds to user needs across Campus. In this way, this project will not only support the needs in the classroom, but the broader Campus community as a whole through intelligent and responsive design practices.
