Instructor Voices – Active Learning Classrooms in the Campus Instructional Facility (CIF)

Molly Goldstein (ISE) teaches in two different classrooms in the Campus Instructional Facility – a Tiered Pod classroom and a Gather room in the basement.

In this video, Goldstein describes these unique learning spaces—both designed for active learning—and how they have fostered more discussion, collaboration, and a deeper understanding of the material in her courses.

“I … think students are learning more deeply when they get to actively engage in their learning,” says Goldstein, who goes on to discuss why higher education should continue to invest in these non-traditional learning environments for students.
