What's in the Hub?

The key elements to the student experience within Hub Central have been identified as:

  • an informal learning space which facilitates aspects of social learning;
  • a library which is integrated in the learning process;
  • services for students which are delivered face-to-face and on-line; and
  • information technology facilities which encourage informal and flexible learning practices, with ongoing student-focussed support.

Student consultation has been the key to the development of the Hub and the Hub Crew remain committed to listening to users of the facilities.

Through collaboration, a decision has been made to deliver the following from Hub Central:
