4 Reasons Why Online Learning Drives Residential Classroom Innovation - Joshua Kim, Inside Higher Ed

Want to get support on your campus to invest in creating new active learning classrooms? Your best strategy might just be to advocate for online education. The move towards investing in active learning classrooms is not a repudiation of the traditional lecture. Lecturing can still occur in these spaces. Rather, the active learning classroom can support both lecturing - as well as collaborative team work, faculty coaching (through wandering around), and the seamless incorporation of technology (usually BYOD devices) into hands-on learning activities. The challenge with active learning classrooms is less pedagogical, but financial. What I’m suggesting is that those of us on our campuses interested in championing the building of active learning classrooms should also think about championing new online / low-residency programs.
