Ellis Hall Active Learning Classrooms

Research

One of the primary goals of redesigning classroom space in Ellis Hall is to evaluate how teaching spaces can facilitate changes in approaches to teaching and student learning. Over the course of the project instructors and students that use the space will be asked to reflect on the use of the space and its functionality. Understanding how the design of these spaces and approaches to teaching affect the student experience and student learning will help inform decisions about future spaces here at Queen's.

The Centre for Teaching and Learning will, during the first year of the project, work with instructors to determine an approach to evaluate the space and its influence on their approach to teaching and students learning. These may include focus groups, testimonials, teaching observations, questionnaires and surveys of students.
