Active Learning environments is a growing trend within the K-12 and Higher Education segments, and University of New Orleans is now able to test this teaching and learning style starting this fall. Utilizing a pilot classroom program through Steelcase, Workplace Solutions and University of New Orleans came together to create a classroom that is generating buzz throughout campus.
The Steelcase Pilot Classroom program is a one-time offer of new classroom furniture at a substantially discounted price to “test” these new Active Learning styles. This program includes webinars for the professors/teachers to discuss Active Learning and how to implement. There is also a pre-installation survey for faculty and also students that will later be compared to a follow up survey, with the intentions to show the impact of the change that occurred in the classroom.
Active Learning is a trend that continues to grow in the education market at all levels. Contact us to hear more about Steelcase’s research into active learning, and the products that have been developed as a result.
