Fujitsu and Intel have launched a new Innovation Hub at Derby College, which is set to put technology at the heart of learning for the College and its Higher Education students.
As part of the businesses’ commitment to developing IT skills in the UK, the new Innovation Hub, which is the ninth of its kind in the UK, will transform the learning experience for more than 400 students on degree programmes at the College, support teacher development CPD, as well as providing a resource for the wider community.
The facility has been fitted with a range of Fujitsu and Intel hardware, including STYLISTIC tablets, LIFEBOOK laptops, and ESPRIMO desktop PC’s, offering a more personalised teaching and learning experience as teachers and students have the option to choose between the devices and make use of the device best suited to their own teaching or learning style.
Derby College Head of Faculty Kate Martin said: “With a growing number of Higher Education students at the College, we have designed a study area specifically for them at the Roundhouse campus, including this Innovation Hub.
“We are extremely grateful to Fujitsu and Intel for their investment in the College which will greatly enhance the students’ learning experience and provide them with the latest technologies to improve their digital literacy that will better prepare them for the next stage of their education and the world of work.”
