This smaller active learning classroom is in Melville LIbrary N-4535. 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 W4535 has seating for 48 students. The front wall is equipped with two collaboration-ready LCDs, and the back wall features a long whiteboard. Moveable furniture makes group work, rearranging, changing focus, and redirecting student activities a breeze. With tiered table seating in addition to tablet-ready classroom seats, you can redefine your lectures to be more engaging, discussion-friendly, and effective.
