Reimagining the Classroom Symposium: A Learner-Centric Approach, September 23 at Ikenberry Commons

Sep 20, 2016, 06:57 AM by Ava Wolf


There has never been a more important time to consider the current and future state of the university classroom. Higher education is facing an almost unprecedented time of change where diverse forces such as shifting values, reduced revenue, and ubiquitous technologies are reshaping the landscape of teaching and learning.

The Reimagining the Classroom Symposium has evolved from its first Flexible Learning Summit in 2013, but our basic mission remains the same: to promote transformative learning experiences for our residential students by exploring the complex relationships between physical classrooms, teaching pedagogies, and emerging technologies. 

This year’s Reimagining the Classroom Symposium will explore how we design classrooms, how we teach in them, and most importantly, how our students learn in them. The program includes futurist speaker Rex Miller, roundtable conversations about teaching and learning, an architect panel highlighting design trends, and spotlight presentations about classroom projects happening on this campus. A self-guided Classroom Tour and two optional CEU courses will round off the event which is free to UIUC Faculty and Staff. 

Don’t miss this unique opportunity where designers, researchers, faculty, students, and staff come together to reimagine the classrooms of today, and tomorrow.
