Apply to teach in Alamance 207

Alamance 207 was renovated during Winter Term 2016 to serve as a prototype learning space. The classroom design supports 360-degree learning, as students and faculty work together in unique and collaborative ways. To promote the effective use of this unique classroom and to further our efforts to gather feedback on it, faculty who are interested in teaching in this space are asked to apply.

  • To participate in a training session at the end of the semester to think about how to transfer these pedagogies to other classroom spaces
  • To participate in research about the effectiveness of this space for enhancing active learning and student success (e.g., faculty and student surveys, observational studies, etc.).
  • To be willing to share your experience with others
