Active Learning Lecture Hall Classroom (Hine Hall 118, IUPUI)

Hine Hall 118 is designed to support active learning in large lecture-hall classrooms. All seats have power to support bring-your-own devices. Students can easily group for collaboration because of the variety of work settings, which includes rows and round-tables, plus the whiteboard space around the perimeter the room. All students can easily share content via their mobile device to the large projectors in the front of the classroom using Mersive Solstice.

I was able to incorporate active learning and collaborative group work in ways that would have not been possible in a traditional lecture-style classroom... I now can’t imagine teaching without this set-up!
