What does the "classroom of the future" look like?
How can space and environment enable learning?

Educational settings are increasingly being designed to facilitate project-based and collaborative interactions with specific attention to mobility, flexibility, and multiple device usage. The LHRIC opened it's Active Learning Center (ALC) in 2015 as a location to explore how space, technology, and instructional design intersect in the unique field of active learning.

Instead of the traditional lecture-oriented room, this new classroom emphasizes group learning and collaboration. An instructor now serves as a facilitator – guiding exploration, designing transitions, monitoring progress, answering questions, providing resources, and interacting with learners throughout the space.
