Classroom Design for Active Learning

Classroom Design for Active Learning | Helen Chu

From labs to large concert spaces, from urban farms to studio classrooms, we know intuitively that space shapes behavior. Indeed, space and technology can be powerful tools to support – or hinder faculty efforts in adopting active learning. This webinar demonstrates how classroom design can promote active learning and create more inclusive classroom environments. We will explore options for classrooms that are not specifically designed for active learning and how to advocate for active learning environments campus wide. For research and publications supporting Helen’s 5 Classroom Design for Active Learning Principles, please see her bibliography, located on the last slide of the deck.
