Abstract

As a small liberal arts college, we pride ourselves on the quality of faculty/student interactions. In recent years the college, has explored the role of digital technology and how it can elevate face-to-face interactions in the classroom. The use of technology to allow for more active learning time when faculty and students are in a face-to-face setting has been a focus. A significant number of faculty, have made efforts in this area and evidence of success we’ve already had can be seen through this video: http://goo.gl/n9fzo5

In addition, the college has begun thinking about classrooms as “learning spaces,” much more purposefully considering how space can be used to facilitate learning. In the process of defining blended learning at St. Norbert College, the faculty endorsed a Full Spectrum Pedagogy Model, which attempts to place blended learning in the context of a continuum of technology integration.

To support a full spectrum of teaching methodologies, three classroom types have been identified at St. Norbert: General, Lecture and Technology Enabled Active Learning Classroom. We are making concerted efforts to move in a direction where all classrooms have upgraded technology that supports BYOD for both instructor and student and the right furniture to support the desired teaching methodologies for each space.

This presentation will demonstrate our attempt to align our learning spaces with our full spectrum pedagogy model and will offer a strategy for participants to engage their own colleagues in rethinking learning spaces that best support blended learning.
