Active Learning Classrooms (ALC)
Active learning classrooms (ALC) are a joint venture between the University Libraries, UW-IT Classroom Technologies and Events (CTE), and UW-IT Learning Technologies (LT). If you have questions or would like more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or subscribe to the ALC listserv, email@example.com.
What is an active learning classroom? ALCs can be described as interactive, interdisciplinary spaces where information and technology are combined to facilitate scholarship. Faculty are provided with a unique opportunity to explore how space and technology can promote student learning. Active learning classrooms support case-based learning, guided inquiry, peer learning and just-in-time learning, all of which are increasingly the basis for how classes are taught. Student-centered pedagogy is promoted and students are encouraged to build on prior understanding to solve problems, critically evaluate solutions and create new knowledge.
