Active Learning Classrooms @ Queen's

Presentation Type: Group Presentation



In January 2014, Queen's launched 3 new active learning classrooms.  This presentation will include an overview of the rooms, why they were built, and reasons for technology decisions.  A summary will be given of how the rooms have been received so far by students and professors, how we are supporting the rooms, and issues we have experienced.  The focus will be on the IT side of things, rather than pedagogical value.
