Focused Collaboration:
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.

Classroom Details

General Information  

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. 



Installed Equipment   

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.

Faculty are also encouraged to invite any teaching or staff assistants to these orientation training sessions.
