Collaboratively Transforming an Abandoned Swimming Pool into an Experimental, Interactive Classroom

Monday, June 02 | 5:45PM–6:30PM | City Terrace 9 (Third Floor)
Session Type: Professional Development
We will discuss the academic and IT perspectives on a collaborative project to transform an abandoned swimming pool into a "sandbox classroom," where faculty and students are encouraged to approach teaching and learning with an adventurous and curious spirit. The driving design goal for this experimental, interactive classroom was flexibility to allow room configuration changes and integration of new or unexplored technology in support of different teaching and learning styles.
