Roundtable: Does Teaching Space Matter?

Date: Tuesday, December 17, 2019

Time: 10 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Location: Stokes 205


  • Andrea Lommen, Professor and Chair of Physics and Astronomy 
  • Casey H. Londergan, Chair and Professor of Chemistry 
  • Elisabeth Evans, Visiting Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies
  • Jamie Becker, Visiting Assistant Professor of Biology
  • Mary Ellen Kelly, Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology 
  • Tetsuya Sato, Senior Lecturer of East Asian Languages and Cultures and Director, Bi-College Japanese Language Program
  • Yuka Usami Casey, Visiting Instructor of Japanese

These faculty members all participated in the workshop that Instructional Technology Services offered in August, “Small Teaching and the Science of Learning” and have been teaching in one of the newly renovated active learning teaching spaces this fall. 

They will share their experiences teaching in the space. They will discuss what classroom features made it easy for them to make “small” changes to incorporate learning science and active learning principles.

We hope that we can identify what is crucial for teaching spaces to create inclusive and equitable classrooms for diverse students.  

If you are interested in employing inclusive-teaching methods, here is an article from the Chronicle of Higher Education: Want to Reach All of Your Students? Here’s How to Make Your Teaching More Inclusive.
