Another Piece in the Mosaic@IU: Active Learning Practices in a Steelcase Verb Classroom
This session focuses on a yearlong mixed methods research study of a redesigned active learning general-purpose classroom that features Steelcase moveable Verb furniture at Indiana University. In fall 2015 and spring 2016, survey methods were used to examine student perceptions (N = 152) of learning practices across 24 courses. Survey data indicated statistically significant differences in three specific areas: space reconfiguration, individual whiteboard use, and student use of technology. Video capture of daily summer instruction provided detailed analysis of the novel ways faculty and students interacted within the space. Session attendees will be encouraged to share their experiences with learning space designs.

Outcomes: Explore the features of an active learning classroom that integrates the Steelcase Verb system *Consider an example of student and faculty observed behaviors within an active learning space *Learn about student and faculty perceptions of learning and pedagogy in active learning classrooms

Energize Your Course with a Mobile Data Science Learning Experience
Students are used to using their mobile devices to collect data daily. They just don't think about their photos, "likes" and "posts" as "data." Learn how to energize your course by putting student device know-how together with real-world inquiry. Using mobile devices to collect data is an exciting way to energize your students and teach them about data science, research practices, data visualization, analysis, and privacy. UCLA has been leveraging a mobile data-collection platform in courses to allow students to make hypotheses and then test them out with mobile data-collection tools and a built-in data visualization dashboard.

Outcomes: Learn what a mobile data collection platform is and how it can be used for instruction *Suggest to faculty how a mobile data collection exercise might be useful in a course *Demonstrate to your faculty how they might use mobile learning exercises in their courses
