Improving the Learning Landscapes site

We’re improving this site to make it a deeper, more comprehensive and more interactive resource for University of Lincoln students, staff and our wider communities.

The site has become very popular during the 2012/13 academic year, with over 5,000 unique visitors since 1 August 2012, and we want to increase its value and readership.

We will still be blogging, but we are also introducing four new sections, accessible via the menu above:

  • The Masterplan section is where you can learn more about the University’s long-term vision for the development of the Brayford Pool campus.
  • The Projects section contains dedicated pages for major campus development projects – starting with Library 1.5 and the New AAD Building.
  • The Research section highlights the most significant Learning Landscapes research globally, including Lincoln’s significant contributions to the field.
  • The Engage section showcases opportunities for students, staff and the public to engage with campus development. This is also where we will share the results of these interactions.

Like the campus itself, the site will always be a work in progress. The new structure will be more fully populated over the next few months. We look forward to receiving your comments and questions.

  1. Hey Sam,

    As I said in that meeting, think it’s great that there are developments but just be careful it doesn’t get too clean. It’s nice because it’s informal but with a professional tone.

    There’s a ‘design’ feel to the old blog and I think that’s a good theme to stick with.

    Cheers,

    Wez

    • Thanks, Wez. Those are good notes, as always.

      We’ve just hit a critical point recently where there’s too much to communicate now through a stream of posts, and we need to get more organised. We want to keep the ‘raw’ stuff though – first looks at hand-sketched ideas for projects, more opportunities to get involved early on in development, and loads more progress updates during construction.

      We’ve also moved the blog feed back to the front page to make it seem less ‘finished’, more work-in-progress.
