Students in an active learning classroom
Did you know that as a faculty member you can reserve the Active Learning Classroom in Knight-Crane Hall to use for a class session?

 

Room Features

In addition to an instructor's podium with a PC, DVD player, and Epson projector, this classroom features:

  • 5 large wall-mounted displays with HDMI hookups, VGA to HDMI adapters, Apple TV, and remotes
  • Reconfigurable tables and chairs
  • One wall-spanning magnetic whiteboard
  • 4 medium-sized whiteboards

 

What can you do with your students in this space?  

To get an idea, pan the Active Learning Classroom here in a new browser tab and then keep reading below! 


Imagine that you had your students set up in small groups facing each of those wall-mounted displays more like this photo from another university. What kinds of activities and problems could you ask them to work on to explore your course concepts - they can use the internet, digital class materials, multimedia and collaborative software. . . . 


And what if they came up with different ideas to share with the rest of the class? It's not only easy for small groups to collaborate, but to present their ideas across groups by sharing their creations, findings, interpretations, and solutions through the wall mounted displays. Whiteboards make it easy to brainstorm, sketch, plan, and communicate observations along the way. A great environment to encourage active and collaborative learning and teach teamwork along the way.
