  41. 41. feedback •  My initial impression is of a amazingly technically-supported range of flexible spaces for working away from the office. Amidst the latest in learning technologies, I loved the write-on wall. No white boards, but especially painted walls (those that have a sticker on) that give space to 'spread your mind'. " Faculty of Education •  Its magical what a combination of technology, design and thoughtful planning can do. I am sure the staff and students will use it well." Research Office •  The Nursing & Midwifery staff were so impressed with the teaching commons that our new Head of Disciplines has asked if we can use the space for all our Research and Scholarship workshops." Faculty of Health •  Surrounded by whiteboard walls, any individual, regardless of where they were in the room, could be put in the position of group leader. The students were encouraged to turn around and jot ideas down whenever they felt so inclined – and they did.  With no one at ‘the front’ designated as the authority figure, there was much more spontaneous input than I have experienced in a standard classroom.
