Visual Learning Lab


Evaluation of VLL-supported initiatives suggests that integrating visual technology into teaching and learning generally leads to an increase in student engagement.  This page is for you if you want to find out more about the practical and technical aspects of using visual technologies in your teaching, or if you wish to make a booking to use any of the VLL-funded facilities.


The VLL has funded the following open-access facilities and new learning spaces.  

  • Thunder™ Wall in Hallward Library and on Jubilee Campus
  • Video-editing facilities on Kings Meadow Campus
  • Smartboard, videoconferencing and Thunder™ Wall technology on Jubilee Campus

These facilities are specifically designed to allow for experimentation and exploration of new teaching and learning scenarios. Click on the links on the left-hand menu to go to the relevant How to Guides


The PESL (Promoting Enhanced Student Learning) Website has some great ideas and tutorials from staff already involved with using visual technologies in their teaching, including contributions by many of the personnel involved with the Visual Learning Lab work described in the Case Studies .


The Visual Learning Lab supported ten student interns who worked with the core team to bridge the gap between staff, students and new visual learning technologies.
