The University of Minnesota sought to enhance student learning experiences by integrating innovative teaching pedagogies and technology. To accomplish this, UMN researched and implemented an active learning classroom (ALC). Research results show how the faculty and students are reaping the benefits of new, technology-rich learning environments. This session will review this work and overview where technology is going in the UMN classroom design process.

OUTCOMES: Review UMN research that demonstrates learning improvements when students work collaboratively with instructors and peers * Learn how distinct teaching and learning improvements result from use of the ALC * Identify the key design and technology elements in an ALC that enhance faculty/student interaction * Review UMN's vision for future design of technology-enabled classrooms
