What are Alcs?
What is an active learning classroom ? Active learning classrooms (Alcs) can be described as interactive, interdisciplinary spaces where information and technology are combined to facilitate scholarship. Faculty are provided with a unique opportunity to explore how space and technology can promote student learning. Alcs support case-based learning, guided inquiry, peer learning and just-in-time learning, all of which are increasingly the basis for how classes are taught. Student-centered pedagogy is promoted and students are encouraged to build on prior understanding to solve problems, critically evaluate solutions and create new knowledge.
