Active Learning Center Open House

Information Technology invites you to attend the Active Learning Center’s (ALC) open house on Friday, August 22, 2014, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm in MEEM 120. The ALC, formerly known as the MEEM “Fishbowl,” has been completely transformed into a technology-rich collaborative learning space, featuring 72 student computer stations, 3 instructor stations, and 29 collaboration LCD monitors.

Unlike the traditional learning space, the “front” of the classroom has been eliminated, allowing faculty to facilitate both heads-down concentration work and group collaboration, as well as provide hands-on technology for their students. In addition, when this room is not scheduled for classes, it will be available to all students as a computer lab.

Please join us this Friday to learn more, as staff will be on hand to provide tours and demonstrations. For further information, please contact or call (906) 487-1111.
