Application for Future Learning Spaces Semester 1 2023-2024

For semester 1 of the academic year 2023-2024, requests for an Future Learning Space can be submitted until March 24 2023. Applications can be made via this form or by emailing fls@uu.nl.

Do you want to provide active learning or group work in your education? And do you feel sometimes limited in regular learning spaces? Perhaps a Future Learning Space can offer you a solution!

Which spaces are involved?

Within the UU, the following 5 Future Learning Spaces have been developed with their own characteristics and possible teaching methods:

  1. (Hybrid)  Active Learning Classroom: Bolognalaan 100, room 2,049 (capacity 48 people)
    Space where interactive, student-oriented learning is central and which stimulates active learning through the setup.
  2. Teaching & Learning Lab, Buijs Ballot building 3.22 (capacity 36 people)
    The flexible layout of this space ensures that you can easily adapt it to your learning activities.
  3. Teaching & Learning Lab, Buijs Ballotgebouw 3.19 (capacity 20 people)
    The flexible layout of this space ensures that you can easily adapt it to your learning activities.
  4. Virtual Classroom: Ruppert building, room 1.39 (capacity: 48 people online)
    Space for remote learning where teaching feels more natural then in front of a laptop. Online participants feel more involvement and interaction with the lecturer.
  5. Learning Plaza: Minnaert building, room 1.35 (capacity: 150 people)
    Due to its size, the LP offers the possibility to organize different learning activities simultaneously.

Watch the videos via the link above or go to the Future Learning Spaces website for additional information about the relevant spaces.

Based on research, it was decided to develop more Active Learning Spaces. From September 2023 we hope to offer students and teachers two additional spaces aimed at active learning. More information will follow shortly.

Timetabling of a Future Learning Space

Since Future Learning Spaces are available for the entire university and because of the experimental nature of the spaces, an orientation meeting is part of the scheduling process.

If you have applied for an FLS, you will receive an invitation for an interview. During this interview your wishes will be considered, as well as the learning activities for which you want to use the space and whether these are in line with the FLS and its experimental character.

Do you have any questions?
