“Creativity was encouraged! [The Classroom] allowed me to make my seminars more creative and interactive.”

     - Student Feedback






“I clearly came closer to achieving learning outcomes in this environment even if they were different than those I normally have.  Students also clearly enjoyed the experience and attendance was better.”

- Faculty Feedback

“I would definitely teach another course in the classroom. The interactive technology in a smaller classroom format was just what was needed to enable students to tackle the subject matter at hand. A central part of the course pedagogy focused on popular culture and mass media. Instead of talking or reading about these issues, we were able, as a class, to engage them, immediately.”   

     - Faculty Feedback






 “All classrooms should look like this. Round tables for discussion, chairs on wheels, white boards, interactive boards and no 'front of classroom' focus. The room really supports 21st century learning.”

     - Student Feedback

“[T]he classroom environment was conducive to collaboration and idea sharing, AND the readily available use of technology let us create and explore right on the spot.”


     - Student Feedback





 “We used different tables to pull up different things, so on one projector we had a twitter feed up, on another we had our lecture slides, on another groups were looking up examples the professor asked for, and many more interactive, immersive activities”    

     - Student Feedback

“I had never seen a space like it before. It was warm and inviting and I was excited to use the equipment!”    

- Student Feedback





“It was a small but effective setting. Since we were learning about 21st century learners and web 2.0 technologies, it felt appropriate to be in a room that supported what we were learning. I was also motivated by the colours, the words on the wall and the general feel of the room. It was modern and more inviting than most classrooms.”    

     - Student Feedback


 “I took the same course outside the Active Learning Classroom last term and needed to drop it because I was uninterested and it was hard for me to learn. I took it this term [in the Active Learning Classroom] and am able to understand the information clearly and actually enjoy what I'm learning.”

     - Student Feedback






 “The round tables, laptops and white boards seemed to make the room a cozy place to learn. The emphasis was definitely felt on group learning.”

     - Student Feedback

 “By collaborating with other students at my table, I formed closer relationships with others in the class that I otherwise would have!”

     - Student Feedback






 “It was just nicer than a regular classroom. It wasn't boring or dull in that room; it makes you want to come to class.”
