Abstract

The University of Iowa has rapidly transformed several classrooms into engaging, active learning spaces, and it has shifted the curriculum of 56 faculty members since the fall of 2009. Students are engaged in their learning as instructors move from the traditional role of "sage on the stage" to "guide on the side." The rooms have been branded TILE to signify four basic principles: Transform, Interact, Learn, Engage. This session will include discussion of some of the challenges faced during this project, with particular attention to the use of active learning spaces in arts and humanities, and planned next steps including current assessment projects.
