We currently have two flexible spaces you can book — the Experimental Teaching Space and the Collaboration Area. Not sure which space is suitable for you? Get in touch.

Technology

The Experimental Teaching Space Is equipped with 7 projectors — 6 of which have Solstice Pods — and the Collaboration Area has one projector which is equipped with a Solstice Pod. Both spaces also have access to our collection of technologies.

Individual training is available on Teaching Grid technologies to help you make best use of them.

Please note: Teaching Grid staff do not accept responsibility for removing or transferring any data from our devices. Our devices are routinely formatted to remove any saved files.

Booking policy

The purpose of the Teaching Grid is to facilitate the development of teaching and co-creation at the University, and as such we ask that sessions meet the following criteria:

Academics

Academics can book for sessions that will involve students as learners or partners and are either:

  • First time use of the spaces
  • Developmental to their teaching
  • Using equipment or resources not available elsewhere in the University
  • In less than a week’s time and are teaching and learning related

Teaching partners

  • Academic Development Centre
  • Academic Technology Team
  • IATL
  • Warwick International Higher Education Academy

Our teaching partners can book the space for sessions that are teaching and learning related, within agreed limits.

Other university staff

During terms 1 and 2

Non-academic members of the University can book the space for sessions that are teaching and learning related workshops and training events happening within the next 5 working days.

During term 3 & vacations

Non-academic members of the University can book the space for teaching and learning related workshops and training events. Bookings cannot be made more than one term in advance, i.e.:

  • Christmas vacation: bookings taken from start of summer vacation
  • Easter vacation: bookings taken from start of Christmas vacation
  • Term 3: bookings taken from start of term 2
  • Summer vacation: bookings taken from start of Easter vacation

Please remember: making a booking request does not guarantee you a booking as we will need to make any special arrangements.
