Open for Business

Open for Business

On Monday, 2,000 AUT students will walk through the doors of a new state-of-the-art Business Faculty.

The building will house 6,000 students in 39 classrooms, two case rooms and seven seminar rooms over 10,000m2 of purpose-built space.

Boardroom-style round tables in every classroom shift focus away from the lecturer onto other students. This will open the gateway to debate and challenge and so deliver AUT’s dynamic student-centred, active learning teaching philosophy.

All classrooms are equipped with wireless online access, data show capabilities, DVD and VCR players and a document camera operated from a touch pad control panel fitted to the lecturer desk.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.

Scoop Review Of Books: A Pale Ghost Writer
