Next-Generation Learning Spaces: Supporting Active Learning Anywhere

Thursday, February 04 | 11:15AM–12:00PM | Texas Ballroom Foyer, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
Students need to be actively engaged in the classroom in order to create opportunities for meaningful, deep learning. While many institutions have been creating active learning classrooms (ALCs), the question remains; what about the rest of campus? Other critically important learning spaces such as teaching labs, computer labs, and lecture halls can be designed to better support active learning. This session will explore many examples of next generation spaces and discuss how all teaching and learning spaces can be built using principles to support active and collaborative learning.

OUTCOMES: Analyze examples of active learning classrooms and discuss key features that support active learning * Discuss and evaluate examples of other learning spaces that integrate active learning features and how they may apply on their own campus
