Learning and Teaching Building

A new gateway and learning hub for the Clayton campus

About the building

The Learning and Teaching Building is the product of years of research and design thinking, and harnesses the expertise of multi-award winning design studio John Wardle Architects. The process has taken in and examined each critical aspect of the learning and collaborative experience – from room size and the effects of crowd size and attribution upon student participation, down to the optimum table shape and importance of ease of access to charging facilities.

The result is a visually inspiring, world-class learning environment, designed to accommodate and enhance new styles of learning experience. The open, welcoming atmosphere of the Learning and Teaching Building invites learning engagement. The building will accommodate thousands of students each semester and will be the home of advanced learning and teaching practice across Monash.

The building has 68 formal learning spaces across four floors; these space layouts empower a range of new learning styles – including the dynamic ‘learning in the round’ space, interactive lecture spaces using cutting-edge technology that enables peer presentation and maximises participation, specialised computer and project -based learning, and round table and discursive styles specifically configured to encourage group collaboration. Many space designs can be self-configured by students for group and collaboration work.
