Team Based Classrooms (TBC)

Overall view of Taft Hall 120

In the first half of 2012, the Office of Campus Learning Environments and the Academic Computing and Communications Center renovated Taft Hall rooms 100 and 120, bringing support for a new pedagogy: active, or team-based, learning. For more information on this popular pedagogy, please visit the Team Based Learning Collaborative website.

In the summer of 2018, the OCLE and ACCC partnered to update the team-based technology solution for these two classrooms.

These two classrooms have many exciting features, including:

  • an enhanced Integrated Multimedia Lectern (IML) with:
    • Built-in PC
    • Document Camera
    • Blu-Ray/DVD Player
    • Laptop connectivity
    • Wireless presentation connectivity
  • Two digital projectors with the capability to show discrete images (two different sources, one on each projector)
  • 8 tables with:
    • 6 moveable chairs at each
    • 40" LCD panel at the end of each, connected to a Mersive Solstice wireless collaboration unit, allowing any student to share content from their own laptop or mobile device to their table's display.
