Digital Arts and Humanities Room – Food Science Building



The Digital Arts and Humanities (DAH) room is an innovative teaching space in the Food Science Building. It was created by Dr Orla Murphy and Dr Mike Cosgravefor their Master’s course in DAH.

The room was opened in 2015 and is a shining example of the use of Information Technology to support staff teaching and engage student in new and inventive ways.

The room has a flexible seating arrangement that facilitates both traditional lecture-style and collaborative learning. It also contains fixed booths for collaborative work. The room supports a number of teaching styles from traditional lectures, flipped-classroom, guided discovery and exploration.

The room has a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach, and facilitates the mirroring of student and staff screens on multiple displays throughout the room. There area also a number of fixed high-speed iMacs for the students to work with, a sound and visual recording booth, and touch-screen displays.
