In line with the innovative nature of the International Postgraduate Centre undergoing development, the Menéndez Pelayo International University (UIMP) has articulated the need to design new physical spaces, new Aulas 2.0 ("Lecture Rooms 2.0"), which allow attendance both in person and remotely, allowing collaborative work, group work and the development of a more interactive and ubiquitous form of learning, directly integrating the latest technological and educational advances.

In line with the innovative nature of the International Postgraduate Centre undergoing development, the UIMP has articulated the need to design new physical spaces, new Aulas 2.0 ("Lecture Rooms 2.0"), which allow attendance both in person and remotely, allowing collaborative work, group work and the development of a more interactive and ubiquitous form of learning, directly integrating the latest technological and educational advances.

The aim is therefore to create innovative educational spaces aimed at achieving the following goals:

To attract the best students, researchers, administrators and technologists to the specialised campus of international excellence by improving the overall quality of teaching and its high level of educational innovation.

To promote the international recognition of the Aula 2.0 model developed by the UIMP, the International Postgraduate Centre and the university campus itself within the framework of innovative knowledge-based areas.

To promote the International Postgraduate Centre of the International Campus of Excellence through innovation in its educational models.

The UIMP's intention is to develop, with the winning proposal in this competition or with a combination of them, a first prototype Aula 2.0 in the Pabellón 3 (‘Block 3') building, which has the following technical specifications:

· Pabellón 3: Gross floor area: 1,496.10 m² No. of floors: 3 above grade; 1 below grade

For the purpose of sizing the type of room to be developed, the UIMP stipulates that a maximum number of 25 students present in person in each room must be taken into account, with one or more lecturers/coordinators present both in person or remotely. Equally, other groups of students and lecturers located in other similar remote rooms should be able to participate, as should individuals who due to their location need to connect and participate in conditions of complete mobility. The room must meet the accessibility criteria established by the law for student access to university lecture rooms.

Prizes 

a) First prize: 10,000 euros.

b) Up to a maximum of five mentions for a notable aspect of the proposal, which will receive a certificate and 1,000 euros, at the discretion of the panel.
