The Learning Environments and New Spaces Learning and Teaching Research Network is an intellectual space for teachers, academics, practitioners and industry partners to meet and work collaboratively.
The LENS Research Network is an intellectual space for teachers, academics, practitioners and industry partners to meet and work collaboratively. The overarching aim of the Network is to improve student learning outcomes through research activities that build research strength, industry engagement and partnerships in this critical area of endeavour.
Network meetings are held twice a semester. Individuals meet outside of these meetings to further progress their research interests.
The LENS Research Network is funded by the Vice-Chancellor and President, Martin Bean CBE.
Defining New Learning Spaces
New leaning spaces are face-to-face, collaborative and technology enabled learning environments (Brown, 2005; Oblinger, 2005; JISC, 2006; Steel and Andrews, 2012).
Why join the RMIT LENS research network?
RMIT has made significant investment in new leaning spaces which are designed for staff to teach in student-centred and innovative ways. There are significant opportunities for RMIT staff to conduct research into their teaching in these spaces.
