Technology in Learning Spaces
The design of a classroom represents the philosophy of the institution. A standard lecture hall, with rows of immovable chairs facing the front, supports the learning philosophy of the "sage on the stage", who is simply responsible for distributing information to an audience. An active and collaborative teaching philosophy requires an active and collaborative Learning Space. Open floor plans with mobile furniture allow for group work, whole-class discussions, and individual learning.
KUMC's Learning Spaces were designed with technology in mind. Each room has wall-mounted displays equipped to allow both the instructor and the students to share their screens with the class. Larger rooms have multiple displays designed to allow for flexible arrangement of the room computers. Recording is available in all of the rooms. Ample access to power outlets supports the use of laptops or tablets by all students in any room layout.
