Melville Library N-3033
The most recent renovation in the active learning classroom initiative, the Melville LIbrary N-3033 offers an intimate classroom setting with no distractions. Students will have an opportunity to focus intently on case studies, group projects, or class-wide collaborations. With no true "center" in this classroom, the technology and collaborative equipment are distributed evenly throughout the class. Tablet armrest chairs are specially designed for comfort, quick rearranging, and personal technology devices.
See below for more information, or check 25Live to see specs and availability. Those wishing to schedule the classroom can reach out to our staff at the link below for consultations and training in how to make the best use of an active learning classroom.
Moveable furniture, tablet arm chairs

Case studies, group work, intimate collaborative classrooms, concept-driven interaction
This smaller active learning classroom is in Melville LIbrary N-3033. 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.
Melville N-3033 has seating for 26 students. Every wall is equipped with collaboration-ready LCDs, installed whiteboards, and moveable furniture that makes group work, rearranging, changing focus, and redirecting student activities a breeze.
Training and Support
Faculty facilitating instruction in the Active Learning Classroom are strongly encouraged
to attend a training prior to the beginning of the semester they're using the ALC
to become familiar with the equipment and space. Faculty are also encouraged to invite
any teaching or staff assistants to these orientation training sessions.
During the semester, faculty can request support or training from the Audio Visual Services Counter in Frey Hall. For more information on teaching in an active learning environment, or for help with designing course materials for active learning, faculty should stop bythe Faculty Commons in the Melville Library (E-1332) or submit a request at the link below!
