Faculty Innovation Center Opening Soon

Remember to save the date for the Faculty Innovation Center grand opening celebration. Join us August 22, 2016 from 2 to 4 p.m. in Campbell Hall 100 for an interactive introduction to this innovative space.

This is your time to experience the center and everything it has to offer before the semester begins. During the celebration you can participate in Active Learning Classroom feature demonstrations, talk with professionals about educational technology expertise, and network with the best of them over light refreshments.

Find out what it’s like to teach in an innovative space by getting hands-on time with the room’s special features. Play with the flexible furniture, ‘teaching in the round’ capabilities, technology infrastructure, and the outdoor gathering area.

The Faculty Innovation Center is breathing new life into a space with a unique history. Built in 1920, the building was occupied by Home Economics and the College of Education, where a daycare lived in the center’s room for over fifty years. After its time caring for children, it was turned into offices and later vacated.

The center will primarily be used for courses involved in the Innovative Spaces Program, a campus-wide initiative to foster transformational teaching and learning in university classrooms. When class is not in session, the center will be home to professional development workshops and events.

For more information or questions about the space, email odeeworkshops@osu.edu. We hope to see you there!
