Active Engagement in the Electronic Classroom

August 21st, 2018 by varelaariana Leave a reply »

This summer the Library’s electronic classroom underwent a complete renovation. The new space allows for increased group collaboration and active learning. Some of the new features include:

  • New PCs operating on Windows 10
  • Four mobile tables that promote active learning and engagement
  • Space for laptop use
  • 5 LCD monitors equipped with AirPlay and HDMI connection

All of our PCs are equipped with Faronics Insight, a software that allows instructors to take over student’s screens and display what is on the lectern’s screen. This feature is useful when guiding students through navigating the library’s databases and various other resources. The 5 LCD screens allow students to display their solo or group projects to the table, thus promoting collaboration and group feedback.  For more information on active learning, check out this article published in the Journal of Learning Spaces. Faculty are able to schedule instruction sessions in the e-classroom. More information on how to do that can be found here. 

Here are some photos depicting the upgrades and renovations.
