Teaching in an Active Learning Classroom
Today we are presenting a video and two podcast interviews with two instructors who teach in the new Active Learning Classrooms (ALC) at McGill University. The video was produced by the McGill Teaching and Learning Services.
Active Learning Classrooms allow students to experiment in a more interactive, participative and collaborative learning environment than traditional classes built for lecturing. They combine three elements: a new design with round tables that facilitate collaborative work, discussion and free roaming; a pedagogy based on problem-based, project-based learning and peer-to-peer learning, and technology that supports interaction and communication.
In the audio podcasts, you can hear Carolyn Samuel, who teaches English as a Second Language, and Maureen Baron, who teaches New Media in the Education Faculty, give us their evaluation of these new teaching spaces.
