Back in 2016 William Kelly, Dean of Teaching & Learning at DCU told us :
“.. was very important in the context of our ambitions for a 21st century digital campus that the AV equipment was brought up to date and be state of the art. Student expectations are based on their own personal experience of almost instant access to technology. The new AV technology improves the student experience, you have a changed teaching experience, we are getting closer to the idea of a flipped classroom, where students do a lot of their learning outside of formal lessons, and the classroom becomes much more of a collaborative space. It’s very important in that context that both lecturers and students can bring digital materials in to that space and the technology helps ensure it works. ”
