Our series on Forward-Looking Facilities continues with more detail on the ways that pedagogical change, and particularly the adoption of active learning, has transformed classroom time and classroom spaces on campuses.
In Part 4, “Active Learning,” Ken looks at the way thousand-year-old transmission theories of education created the design of modern lecture theatres, while pedagogical research from UBC’s Carl Weiman Institute has paved the way for new approaches. New classroom designs, from Oregon State University’s “Phil Donahue” theatres-in-the-round to learning studios and SCALE-UP classrooms, have been appearing on PSE campuses for 30 years now, and their importance has only increased post-pandemic.
