UniSA’s new Learning Centre in Mount Gambier features collaborative teaching and learning facilities so lecturers, tutors and students can instantly display their work on large screens for discussion and debate.
There are specialist teaching facilities for education, nursing and social work students including treatment rooms modelled on the Royal Adelaide Hospital and Mount Gambier Hospital, enabling students to learn in real-world scenarios.
A central piazza and a variety of spaces and furniture for socialising and informal learning makes the Mount Gambier Campus a great place to study.
The building boasts 260kms of fibre optic cable to connect Mount Gambier to the national Research and Education network. This means Mount Gambier is now among the most connected regional cities in Australia. Students get access to the same curriculum, the same resources and the same academics as those in Adelaide.
National Institute for Forest Products Innovation Hub
A new partnership between UniSA and the state and federal governments will see a new National Institute for Forest Products Innovation Hub open at UniSA's Mount Gambier campus late-2017.
The hub will play a vital role in fostering collaboration, supporting research, boosting innovation, maintaining jobs and making Mount Gambier one of the major centres for forest-industry research in the country.
UniSA researchers will utilise this space to find innovative approaches to water sustainability and quality, improving waste management and energy use, growing forestry and measuring and managing productivity. For more information read our UniSA News story.
