Evolution of Active Learning at Portland State University
Share |

About this session:

With the increase in demand for active learning environments, institutions are having to figure out which methods are best suited for their unique environments. Portland State University will demonstrate the approaches it has taken, as well as some of the lessons it has learned in implementing active learning spaces, ranging from small to large scale installations. Four distinct spaces will be examined to showcase the evolution of the technical design, balanced against the budget for each project, the needs of the clients, all while maintaining a consistent user experience.
