For the second year in a row, Educause Review prominently featured efforts undertaken at Case Western Reserve University to further teaching and learning.
The publication highlights Case Western Reserve’s Active Learning Initiative. Sponsored by Information Technology Services (ITS) and the Office of the Provost, the robust program is composed of:
an Active Learning Fellowship, through which select faculty members receive course development funds, pedagogical guidance and technology consultation for pushing their teaching past usual boundaries; and
the creation of five active learning spaces that feature movable furniture, best-in-class wireless connectivity, writeable walls and student workstations complete with touchscreen computers and video conferencing functionality. (Two of the rooms were added in advance of academic year 2014, and were constructed based on feedback from participating students and faculty.)
