The Classroom Building includes 15 classrooms and four labs designed for interdisciplinary use by students and faculty across the university. The 73,400-square-foot building contains 15 state-of-the-art classrooms and four interdisciplinary teaching laboratories with seats for more than 1,450 students, as well as study rooms and group meeting space. The new learning spaces are designed to support increasingly interactive and technology-driven learning experiences.
The classrooms have features that include moveable furnishings, wall-mounted writing spaces, and multiple screens for projecting shared material and student work. Some rooms are configured as SCALE-UP classrooms, a specific design that facilitates team-based, active learning as an alternative to lectures, even for large-enrollment classes.
