The Creator Space is a self-service, automated video- and audio-recording studio. Since its launch in mid-2017, it has enjoyed steady levels of use by staff and students.
In this 360-degree virtual-tour video, Callan Rose, the Senior Educational Development Adviser at UWA’s Educational Enhancement Unit, explains what the Creator Space is and how it can be used to support everyday teaching and learning.
Very much a student-focused facility, the fully automated recording studio makes it easy to create high-quality audio and video content. It can be used for producing media-rich content such as videos for teaching purposes and, due to its automated nature, it is perfect for users who don’t have access to recording equipment, or who lack the technical skills to use it.
Users of the Creator Space are well supported by in-room resources, as well as a collection of short instructional videos. This ample support is backed up by the positive feedback coming from teaching staff – for Anas Ghadouani, Professor of Environmental Engineering, the Creator Space has been incredibly beneficial for teaching the ENVE5502 Wastewater Engineering: Treatment and Resource Recovery unit.
“That space is amazing,” Anas said. “I will certainly make use of it in my teaching. I had my students check it out with me the other day and we were blown away.
“I made a strong suggestion for the group to use the Creator Space for their collective work. It has multiple benefits and the students themselves are realising this.”
We encourage all teaching staff to think about ways to make use of Creator Space and to incorporate dynamic student-created content into their units.
