Interactive Learning:
HSC L2-101

The most recent renovation in the active learning classroom initiative, HSC L2-101 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.

Classroom Details

General Information  

The Active Learning Classroom HSC L2-101 is an advanced-technology General Purpose Classroom located within the Health Sciences Center. 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   

The Active Learning Classroom in HSC L2-101 has seating for 45.

There are three LCD projectors controlled by a touch panel, windows along the back wall with electronic shades, and Node chairs that switch for left-handed students and easily move for active learning formats.
