Abstract

Extract:

Bond University has recently completed construction of an engaging formal teaching space, known as the Pod Room, named as a result of its pod, or kidney-shaped, group work desks. The room has been designed to facilitate interactivity, teamwork, and sociability amongst students. Our concept of this pod space is based on an innovative design that has been successfully trialled at the University of Melbourne and the University of Queensland.
