Global and International Studies Building (GISB)

All 13 classrooms in the GISB, Indiana University’s first active learning classroom building, are designed for active learning. The furniture is flexible, and students have the ability to wirelessly display content on the side display monitors. The walls are wrapped with whiteboards to encourage student collaboration and brainstorming.

My students love to participate in active learning and the classroom facilities that learning. I could not be as successful teaching nor my students as successful learning without this room .
