2014 Conference - Technology Enhanced Active Learning Classrooms
Share |

*Session recording is not available

About this session:

Learner centered pedagogy is critical for student learning (Svinicki & McKeachie, 2014; Prince, 2004). Innovative technology in the classroom can enhance student capabilities to visualize information, view simulations and collaborate with peers and experts (Warger & Dobbin, 2009). This poster will present information on the process followed by Montana State University to create the University’s pilot Technology Enhanced Active Learning (TEAL) classroom. The objective for building the classroom was to increase student academic success. The poster will provide an overview of the design of the room, which included five round tables of nine students at each table, computer connections for each team, flat screen monitors for each table, and an instructor work station located in the middle of the room. The poster will also include discussion of the pedagogical implications of a TEAL classroom, information on instructor preparation and best practices. The innovative design of the room and curriculum contributed to the increased student engagement, student success, and the development of skills that can be used beyond individual classes. Details on the assessment of student success and feedback will also be included.
