A panel discussion featured Phil Waterhouse from Crestron UK, Adam Harvey from the University of Hertfordshire, Dr Ross Little from the University of Leeds and Simon Ferguson from Top-Tec.

Technological Innovations Group (TIG) has released a new panel discussion with industry experts to provide practical advice for Universities to consider when implementing their hybrid learning model.

The discussion responds to the results of a recent survey conducted by TIG, which saw 10% of the UK’s Higher Education establishments give their thoughts on how the pandemic has affected the sector, and on the future of teaching and learning environments.

A crucial finding was that no-one is predicting a move fully back to the classroom or fully online, with 100% of respondents seeing a mix of virtual and in-person learning, suggesting that hybrid teaching is a key term which will drive the investment and development of teaching spaces.

Top provide advice on what steps should be taken to kick-start the planning process, TIG invited the following experts to share their experiences and tops tips during the 30-minute panel discussion:

  • Phil Waterhouse, Education Business Development Manager from AV and UC hardware manufacturer, Crestron UK
  • Adam Harvey, Solution Architect from the University of Hertfordshire
  • Dr. Ross Little, Technical Supervisor from the University of Leeds
  • Simon Ferguson, Sales Director from technical furniture specialist Top-Tec
