Open House in Ellis Hall

Monday, December 9, 2013, 2:30pm - 4:00pm Ellis Hall, Room 319
Three new active learning classrooms have been constructed in Ellis Hall. The new classrooms are designed to facilitate interaction between students, to enable small groups of students to work collaboratively, and to allow groups to communicate with the rest of the class and their instructor. This workshop will allow participants to tour the three new active learning classrooms, consider the configuration and the technology available in each room, and discuss the opportunities, advantages and challenges of the teaching strategies that can be used in these spaces.
