Teaching and Seminar Facilities

Teaching with collections in a hybrid environment.

The teaching spaces at the Centre for Research Collections have been upgraded to support the hybrid learning environment. Ceiling-mounted and desktop visualisers have been installed to allow for both live and pre-recorded teaching with collections. In-person teaching is also available.

The visualisers use their own software, readily installed on the PCs. They are compatible with Blackboard Collaborate, Microsoft Teams and Zoom Enterprise. CRC staff can provide introductory training on equipment usage.

Please use the enquiry form at the end of this page and a member of staff will respond.
