Managing the Spanish campus: “El campus del futuro es una ciudad”

by Alexandra den Heijer

Last week I joined the group of directors of estate (campus managers) of Dutch universities to Spain. Together we visited the campuses of 5 universities in and around Madrid and Toledo:

-1- University of Alcalá | Universidad de Alcalá (UAH)
-2- University UNED | Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED)
-3- Technical University of Madrid | Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM)
-4- University Carlos III | Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M)
-5- University of Castilla-La Mancha | La Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM)

Some of lessons and photos can be found below. The title of this post “El campus del futuro es una ciudad” is one of the proposition of my PhD thesis (see PROPOSITIONS). This proposition also applies to (my vision on) Spanish campus development.

Last week University of Castilla-La Mancha also put a photo and notice of our visit on their website: Noticia UCLM.

P.S. This week I also received a link to a short film that summarized a conference in Barcelona about “Social Learning Spaces” – see post “Inspired in Spain”. The link to the film – on the website of University of Barcelona – can be found below.
