Academic Technologies oversaw the design of myriad teaching labs in collaboration with the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering and Applied Science. These specialty lab spaces are equipped with traditional laboratory equipment, as well as new interactive technologies that promote active learning pedagogy. Active learning is a pedagogical method that mixes lecture and application time. Active learning is especially popular among science disciplines and requires flexible learning and lab space. The variety of teaching labs in SEH fulfills these unique pedagogical needs.
Teaching labs are equipped with two to three large classroom displays for optimal viewing from student workbenches.
A digital control panel mounted on the wall allows the instructor to move seamlessly from lab to lecture and provides flexibility to teach from multiple locations in the classroom.
Many teaching labs include video connections at student workbenches allowing students to present from their own devices to the classroom projection system.
