Collaboratory Open House The College of Nursing will showcase its Collaboratory classroom at an open house Monday, Feb. 14, 2011, from 3 to 5 p.m. in Procter Hall, Room 286. Housed in a traditional classroom space, the Collaboratory is divided into four segments, each with its own small group seating, large-screen wall monitors and smart boards.
What makes it different from traditional small group interactions is how technology is integrated into the format: Each student group has a wireless mouse and keyboard, and whiteboards (similar to dry erase boards) that can be photocopied—by a central "copy cam”—and loaded for viewing on the monitor.
The classroom is an environment where everything in the room—from the physical layout to the technologies incorporated—is designed to promote active learning. No RSVP is necessary. For more information, call (513) 558-5205.
