I love it. The new furniture has arrived and students are making excellent use of their new social learning platform on the Marylebone site. The seats are funky – settees with lids and sun lounger look-alikes (I am sure the design people have special names for these very modern seats).
Walking through the social space, it is wonderful to see students working together on their assignments and presentations, socializing, or catching up with friends on Facebook. Soon, the new café facilities will open and we will enjoy yet another stage in the development of this site. It is very interesting walking past the site on Marylebone Road. I’ve noticed people stopping and reading the PowerPoint slides being projected in the teaching spaces at the front of the building. Learning from the pavement – a new form of education?
