The Future of Learning Spaces at Penn State

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many current classrooms were built to support the lecture method of teaching, where rows of students face toward, scribbling notes, with little peer interaction. Modern conceptions of teaching and learning envision a far more active and engaged classroom, with students learning from one another, and a shift of the instructor to facilitator. Outside the classroom, libraries, labs, lounges, hallways, and virtual spaces are also recognized as places where rich learning takes place. This panel will explore new ideas about learning spaces. Each panelist will provide a different perspective, and the audience will be engaged in an exploration of solutions.
