The goal of Laurier's Active Learning Classroom projects is to create student-centred learning environments that encourage and facilitate more active and collaborative teaching approaches. Acknowledging the impact and influence that physical space can have on pedagogical possibilities, these classrooms were renovated from a traditional tablet-style lecture space to round tables with advanced technologies that allow students to collaborate and share their work with their tables and/or the entire class.


"Learning is not a spectator sport. Students do not learn much just by sitting in class listening to teachers, memorizing pre-packaged assignments, and spitting out answers. They must talk about what they are learning, write about it, relate it to past experiences, apply it to their daily lives."

(Chickering and Gamson, 1987)

"Buildings have their own hidden curriculum that teaches us as effectively as any course taught in them."
