Teaching and Learning Collaboratory

To support active and blended learning we provide faculty with resources that define various concepts and tools to use in their classroom that promote student participation and engagement with the course content, instructor, and students.

Teaching and Learning Email List

An email list for faculty interested in instructional technologies, pedagogy, and innovative tools for classroom engagement. This list has been created to support faculty who wish to try new technologies and strategies for learning, and as a place to share success and troubleshoot struggles. Subscribers will be notified about any teaching and learning workshops/events on campus and will have the opportunity to share questions and best practices through this forum. Be sure to join this community and join an initiative that strives for active student participation and learning and nurtures the passion for innovation.

Beta Classroom

The Beta Classroom is located on the First Floor of the Folsom Library. The Beta Classroom is a high technology classroom for interactive learning, which can accommodate about 25 students. The goal of the classroom is for faculty to pilot new or interactive technologies and pedagogical approaches that may be appropriate for rolling out in a broad range of classrooms. 

Technology Preview Session

Check out our workshop schedule to see if a Beta Classroom Preview Workshop is running.

If the workshop is not available or does not fit your schedule, contact Maureen Fodera or Jenna Pitera to schedule a preview session of the technology. 

 

Scheduling the Beta Classroom

Send an email to Vice Provost Linda Schadler with a brief summary on your learning concept using the various technologies available in the room. Define which technologies you would like to work with and explain how you will be testing/using the technology with your content to create engagement for the students and improve their learning. 

Once your proposed concept is approved for testing in the Beta Classroom, you will work with Maureen Fodera to schedule your session(s).

After testing, you will be asked to complete a survey that collects your observations and conclusions on using the technology to improve learning. The data will be used to assist in the justification for pushing out some of the technologies into other classrooms on campus.
