Moody 304 Active Learning Lab (Moody/Jones Libraries: Moody Library) Capacity: 30
Moody 304 Active Learning Lab is located inside the Arts and Special Collections Research Center, on the 3rd floor of Moody Memorial Library.
Purpose & Description
The primary purpose of this space is for classes that use active learning methods. The room was built according to established criteria for active learning spaces, and the space design, furniture, and technology work together to support active learning approaches like group work, pair-share, and flipping the classroom. The Active Learning Lab encourages experimentation with a wide variety of teaching and learning strategies.
The standard layout seats up to 30 students in active learning mode. The layout organizes students into Learning Pods. Each Pod has seating for 4, accessible power, a wireless display, and a mobile glass writing surface. The instructor table, located in the center of the room, is height-adjustable with built-in power, HDMI, and touch panel.
The Lab is powered by sophisticated AV technology that allows any input to be sent to any display. Independent Display mode allows each pod to display small group content independently while Unified Display mode shows instructor content on all connected displays. In Independent Display mode, learners can present wirelessly from personal devices including laptops, iPhone, iPads, and Android. Wireless presentation is powered by Mersive Solstice. Instructions to connect are shown on each pod display.
