Learning in the Adelaide North Terrace Cultural Precinct
Dr Diana Quinn, from the University of South Australia Learning and Teaching Unit (LTU) gave me a quick tour of their City West Campus, at the western end of the Adelaide North Terrace Cultural Precinct. This nicely bookends the terrace, which has the state library, museum and art gallery in the middle and the Unviersity of Adelaide a the other end. I sat in on a presentation about the UniSA new $95 million City West student learning centre. The exterior design of the building has been largely finalised, but I discussed some of the options for design of the teaching rooms with Professor Margaret Hicks, Director of Learning and Teaching.
