New learning spaces and systems set to boost student experience at Flinders

The launch of a contemporary vertical campus in the heart of the Adelaide central business district, and new a learning management system, is positioning Flinders University to further enhance the learning experience enjoyed by its students.

Deputy Vice Chancellor (Students) Professor Romy Lawson says the new city campus adjacent to North Terrace and the Adelaide Railway Station is fast taking shape, with students and staff being consulted on fit out to ensure the campus is welcoming and adaptive to learning and study needs.

At the same time, a significant investment in curriculum transformation and implementation of a new learning management system will increase the ease and flexibility of student access to learning.

“After the challenges of the pandemic which saw a widespread softening of student experience across higher education, we continue to pursue initiatives that will deliver an exceptional experience to our undergraduate, postgraduate and international students” Professor Lawson says.

The latest Student Experience Survey for 2022 shows universities are beginning to lift student experience after a difficult three years. Flinders maintained a solid performance during the period, softening slightly in the latest results while maintaining a good longitudinal trend.

“We know that some years are more difficult than others for students and expect to see this reflected in results; our core focus is on maintaining our underlying excellence in teaching and learning and providing our students with the quality staff, contemporary facilities and modern learning systems they deserve, so that their time at Flinders will be amongst the best of their life” Professor Lawson says.
