Lecture, Meet Your Match:
Melville Library W-4535

Melville Library W-4535Amp up your lecture game in Melville Library W-4533, which offers tiered seating designed to increase engagement in discussions and lectures. Bright and airy, this classroom features two LCD projectors up front and a wall-length whiteboard in the back of the room. With two focus stations and nimble, moveable furniture, students can divide their efforts and attention to either side of the room, and quickly reconvene for group discussion.  Tablet armrest chairs are specially designed for comfort, quick rearranging, and personal technology devices.

Faculty can request their course to be held in the ALC if they are designing their course curriculum for active learning. Courses designed for active learning gear more toward the faculty member facilitating student collaborative work to learn or to reinforce material taught previously. Reservations for the ALC are scheduled through the   25Live scheduling system, just as any other General Purpose Classroom on campus is reserved.
