Find a teaching space

Now you can look for a teaching venue in a way that has never been easier! Under the “Teaching & Learning” section, there is a new feature called "Teaching Space" which allows you to find a teaching venue that fits for your teaching requirements. A wide range of searching criteria, such as room type, facilities, capacity and location, is available for you. By selecting the corresponding criteria, the shortlisted result(s) will be shown instantly.

B. New Lecterns

In order to cope with a multipurpose teaching environment, we have recently introduced five new lecterns into Lecture Theatre 2 (CPD-LG07, 08, 09 and10) and CPD-G.02. They come with a touchscreen all-in-one PC connecting by mechanical adjustable arm, built in digital camera, easy-access AV control system panel and input ports. Also, this lectern features electronic adjustable height to accommodate different teacher’s need, and is suitable for presenters who use a wheelchair.

Last but not least, please note that our annual student and staff teaching and learning spaces surveys will be open soon. We encourage you to take this opportunity to give us feedback on the formal and informal spaces that you use to support your teaching and learning.
