University of Salford‘s MediaCityUK campus officially opened today. Despite of weeks of tireless preparation, as usual, there were still a lot of last-minute and emergent business to deal with. I was due to teach at the new, multi-million Digital Performance Lab (Room 0.11) at 10 AM this morning, but yesterday when I left the building in the afternoon, twenty-something theatre stage lights were still lying on the ground of the Lab. Plus, there was no sign of IT facilities in the room which can accommodate 100 students – the largest lecture room here in MediaCityUK. Luckily, this morning, all these lights were fitted and a laptop was connected to the Internet waiting for me there. Magic! I and my Level-5 2nd-year BSc students in Computer and Video Games were privileged to be the first to use this amazing space for our first session this academic year. A big thank you to all the colleagues who made this happen.
