Teach in an Active Learning Classroom

Innovative Spaces is a campus-wide initiative to foster transformational teaching and learning by providing targeted access to spaces designed for active learning. 

This collaboration between ODEE, the University Registrar and the Michael V. Drake Institute for Teaching and Learning encourages a greater focus on active learning pedagogy and more deliberate utilization of physical classroom spaces. Accepted instructors receive priority scheduling in an Active Learning Classroom, 1-on-1 technology training and access to professional learning opportunities.

Apply to Innovative Spaces

The application to teach in an Active Learning Classroom for Autumn 2021 is now closed. The application window for Spring 2022 will open this summer.
