About the Active Learning Classroom
The Active Learning Classroom (ALC) is designed for collaborative teaching methods and techniques. The room design, flexible furniture, writing surfaces, and technology all combine to support faculty in engaging with their students through collaborative learning activities and more participatory use of media. The ALC facilitates diverse sizes and groupings of students, creating a flexible and supportive environment for a class to transition seamlessly between a professor's presentation and facilitated student group work. Such a room enables options for supporting a myriad of teaching and learning arrangements.
