  1. 1. Designing an Active Learning Environment: Lessons Learned Presenters: Terry Keys Assistant Vice President Instructional Technologies Monroe Community College Phil Oettinger Classroom Technology Specialist Monroe Community College
  2. 2. What questions we will answer in this presentation: - What sparked the idea of an Active Learning Environment? - What did we do to prepare to create our own? - What technology did we choose to use? - What did the room look like before? What does it look like now? - What did we learn?
  3. 3. What sparked the idea of an Active Learning Environment? - Director of Planning for MCC and Dean of MCC's Damon City Campus saw Steelcase/Polyvision's Learn Lab Environment - They were then invited to Steelcase/Polyvision headquarters to view the Learn Lab Environment -Environment focus was collaboration and the notion of "No bad seat in the room" -Environment consisted of three screens (one on each wall for different viewing areas), chairs and tables arranged in "X" formation for mobility and collaboration, and interactive teaching tools
  4. 4. What did we do to prepare to create our own? - Visited local Finger Lakes Region College who had Steelcase/Polyvision design and installed a Learn Lab on their Campus -Talked with them about what they liked and did not like -We learned from their challenges and what they would have done differently
  5. 5. What technology did we chose to use? - Instead of going with Steelcase/Polyvision technologies and their partners we chose other equipment -Equipment List: -Panasonic Wide Format Wireless Video Data Projector -Smart Technologies 680i2 complete Interactive Whiteboard System (x2) -Smart Technologies Sympodium -Elmo TT-02s Document Camera (x2) -Computer station (x3) -Extron control system -JBL 23 Control Speakers -DVD/VHS Combo player

  20. 20. What lessons did we learn? Have a detailed plan for rolling out a room like this. Timing is everything. Would have been better to start installation at end of spring semester to use in fall. We knew going into this project that training would be important. Make sure you have training lined up for faculty and train as many staff as possible.
  21. 21. What lessons did we learn? Retrofitting a room is _____. Cabling a room without coring floors, and using floor cable hide is not ideal. Installing a room like this is a double edge sword: You are getting some great technology, but then you have to explain to Faculty that every room will not look like this.
