Building Living Learning Communities

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation only

Abstract

Residence LIFE and The School of Biomedical Sciences have worked together in 2017 to build a paramedic study facility in one of the CSU Bathurst campus residences. The Paramedic Living Learning Community (LLC), located in the Cottrell Tower, is a highly resourced study space that provides residential students 24 hours access to practical equipment and state-of-the-art technology.

Living Learning Communities have a long history in Halls of Residence in North America and Europe, but are relatively unheard of in Australian University Residences.

The philosophy behind the development of this facility is both economic and academic. Providing this sophisticated and highly course specific learning space only to paramedic students who live in is a powerful selling point for our accommodation. But by building a close working relationship between Residence LIFE and the School of Biomedical Sciences, this LLC will also have the potential to provide a space for significant practical and academic achievement for the students who use it.

This presentation will discuss the development and potential for this learning space from a residential business and academic perspective.
