LaSalle College’s innovative new collaborative learning spaces are equipped with ergonomic furniture and cutting-edge technology appreciated by students and teachers alike.
It’s the end of learning standards as we’ve known them. In these classes, there’s no more front or back of the room, no traditional blackboards, no desks in a row.
The educational institution now has a dozen of these collaborative rooms in its facilities, including six new ones. They all enable the school to better meet the needs of modern learning methods.
These rooms were designed with three objectives in mind:
Teachers were called on to modify their teaching methods to optimize the use of these new classrooms. While prior methods centered on students, the new method features fewer lectures and more time for coaching and interactions with students.
Classroom configurations provide a more relaxed, informal environment. In addition, teachers assign more group projects, which promotes a collaborative atmosphere, rather than a spirit of competition among students.
Since they have so many tools available, students demonstrate a higher level of creativity, as well as stronger engagement in their own learning process.
