Sample Active Learning Classroom

Creating an Active Learning classroom within existing buildings is usually challenging. It is probably true that the ideal space is square and free of pillars.
The floor plan below shows an AL classroom at Champlain College Saint-Lambert which accommodates 36 students in about 1,000 square feet.
Although AL designers do not usually furnish each student with a computer it was done here to enable the room to also serve as a traditional computer lab.
Network access is via WiFi, power is provided to table outlets by means of cuts in the concrete floor. (This room is on the ground floor. With upper story rooms it is often possible to drill through the floor to the ceiling space below.)
