The Ellis Hall active learning classrooms opened to students and instructors in January. Each of the three renovated classrooms offers unique configurations and technology that allow instructors to employ different teaching and learning strategies. Mark Kerr, Senior Communications Officer, visited a few classes early in January to observe how the spaces are impacting teaching and learning.
Principal Daniel Woolf toured several classrooms in Ellis Hall that are being

enable students to work in small, collaborative groups and easily communicate
with the rest of the class.
