About Instructional Spaces & Technologies
The Instructional Spaces & Technologies group offers programs and services aimed at developing transformative learning experiences across all instructional modalities. Whether you teach in online, face-to-face, or blended instructional spaces, our staff can assist you in adopting the latest technologies and evidence-based practices that best support and enhance teaching and learning.

Flexible Classrooms

We know that active teaching methods result in better retention and increased satisfaction among students in all disciplines, but recent changes in flexible classroom design are becoming an important part of that dynamic on this campus. From designing new classroom spaces, to designing new courses, our staff is helping to reimagine teaching and learning on this campus—one classroom at a time. Learn more about flexible classrooms. 

Armory Innovation Spaces

The Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning (CITL) developed three innovative spaces designed around undergraduate student engagement and transdisciplinary problem solving. These new spaces opened in Fall 2017 complimenting existing flexible and collaborative learning spaces in the Armory. Read more about the Armory Innovation Spaces here.

Teaching Technologies

New technologies offer many options to structure precisely how you and your students communicate. They can give your students greater voice, help you know what your students know, make class time more engaging, increase time-on-task, and provide new ways to present concepts that were previously impossible. The Instructional Spaces & Technology group seeks to raise the awareness and thoughtful use of technologies in the service of teaching and learning across campus. Learn more about teaching with technology.
