Teach in an Active Learning Classroom

In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, priority scheduling for Innovative Spaces has been suspended as all classrooms undergo reconfiguration with a focus on social distancing for health and safety. We will update this page when these spaces become available again.


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 greater focus on active learning pedagogy and more deliberate utilization of physical classroom spaces. Instructors accepted into the program receive priority scheduling in an Active Learning Classroom, 1-on-1 technology training and access to professional learning opportunities.
