  • 13. Step 3:
    Submit a carefully supported budget request.
    Justify everything you need.
    Include pictures (old and new).
  • 14. Alternate Step 3:
    Begin scouring campus for abandoned tables and unused technology that you can move to YOUR room.
  • 15. Step 4:
    Carefully (and nicely) go to pitch your plan to every influencer in the budget process. Show them the pictures. Be impassioned.
  • 16. Step 5:
    If none of this works, make sure to point out just how little your department has asked for in the past. Active learning requires different classroom spaces. Traditional classrooms FORCE lecturing.
  • 17. Eventually …
    A miracle occurs!
    Ta da!
