An Interdisciplinary, project based and

research-driven teaching and learning environment


About the LINQ Precinct

Sheldon College’s philosophy on learning space design and technology integration is driven by the College’s Student Exit Outcomes. All College learning spaces provide our staff and students opportunities to enhance their future learning capabilities. Sheldon College’s LINQ Precinct, Learning and Innovation for a New Queensland, is where the journey begins.   

The LINQ Precinct is an interdisciplinary, project-based and research-driven teaching and learning environment that hosts three teaching and learning disciplines, Media (Film and Digital Media), Business and Technologies (Digital and Design). 

"The LINQ Precinct, with robotics, artificial intelligence, engineering and rapid prototyping lab, business and incubator hubs, an industry-standard film and television studio and accompanying editing suites, provides a stimulating, energising, agile and proactive educational experience for students from Prep through to Year 12."

Mrs​ Vanessa Noonan, Head of Digital Pedagogy and Innovation

Sheldon College’s LINQ Precinct, a new realm of learning, brings together our physical and digital environments. The innovation in these spaces is not defined by the bricks and mortar but defined by the convergence of educators, industry, partnership, technological infrastructure and research. The foundations and framework underpinning the College’s LINQ Precinct were driven by the need to meet the demands and requirements of our rapidly changing society.

What has been happening in the LINQ Precinct? 

Our responsibility as educators is to prepare the next generation of young people for their lives as adults in a world which is changing at an unprecedented rate. Sheldon College places a strong emphasis on students being exposed to authentic practices and skills that can later serve more complex and innovative endeavours. With the careful implementation of technologies, inconceivable learning is achieved across the College and in alignment with the College’s Student Exit Outcomes.
