Making learning spaces work. Designing a comprehensive support and faculty development program for active and collaborative learning spaces

Wednesday, March 09 | 1:00AM–1:00AM
Session Type: Professional Development
While new learning spaces, like Active Learning Classrooms (ALCs), create exciting new teaching and learning opportunities for instructors and students, they also create unique challenges. Successful teaching and learning in these new spaces necessitates that instructors rethink their approach to teaching and students rethink their approach to learning. The structure of support and development work with instructors on how to use these spaces to help improve teaching and learning is critical. This workshop series will focus on how to support instructors in new spaces, examples of successful programs and an provide a framework to help participants design their own program for their own campus context.
