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.
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.
