NEW: A vision for education and skills at Newcastle University: Education for Life 2030+

IHLS Venues

Inclusive Hybrid Learning Spaces (IHLS) is Newcastle University's institutionally supported pilot for streaming lectures, conferences, and other learning events across various parts of the central campus. IHLS-enabled venues are traditional learning spaces which can additionally be used to support remote participation with clear lines of sight and sound between those presenting, those in the room, and those that are online.
