A refreshed partnership between Edith Cowan University and Make Place, powered by Spacecubed, means that regional university students will have access to a creative and local space in Mandurah to study, learn and connect with others.
This exclusive ECU Regional Learning Hub will give students additional access to support without them having to travel to campus.
The partnership comes after ECU was recently recognised at the Australian Awards for University Teaching (AAUT) for their successful programs that enhance learning and support regional and remote students.The national AAUT awards honour Australia's most outstanding university teachers.
South West Campus Dean Ms Lyn Farrell said the award acknowledged the wide-ranging impact of the program.
"The Regional Learning Hubs bridge the gap for students by providing general academic support, social connection and a concierge-like service in innovative and maker spaces that showcase industry professionals and networks to our students.” Ms Farrell said.
Spacecubed General Manager Chandra Sundareswaran said that this ongoing partnership is great for not only the learning capacity of ECU students, but to offer them an integration into a professional workspace.
“We have been working with ECU throughout the CBD for the past three years on a work-integrated learning internship model. Through this refreshed partnership in Mandurah, we’re able to broaden the support we give students, helping them through their studies and then into the workspace.”
