Durham University

Durham Centre for Academic Development

Education Lab


We are spread over a number of sites across the University, with our central hub based in the Education Lab on the top floor of the new Centre for Teaching and Learning.


This space includes state of the art office facilities, the Digital Playground and a number of meeting and workshop rooms. The Lab is home to our management, Digital Learning, Educational Development and the Academic Development for Students teams. Here we provide a range of activities across the University, and using these fantastic facilities we provide:

  • One-to-one and small group student support activities in our student study lounge
  • Talks, seminars and workshops for staff and PGR students on enhancing their learning and teaching practice, will take place in our development classroom as part of our Educational Development and Researcher Development Programs
  • Exploration of innovative learning technologies and techniques in our Digital Playground.

The Education Lab ensures a safe space to try out new technologies and techniques in learning and teaching, where failure is a vital part of the learning process. Why not pop by to meet a member of the team and explore our exciting new space.
