Curriculum or Pedagogical Innovations

Improving Room 113G in the Main Building for Innovative Pedagogical Activities


The new curriculum features multiple forms of learning and assessment, multidisciplinary collaboration and diverse learning experiences. Changes to Room 113G articulate with established and creative approaches to learning, allowing for flexibility and substantial achievements in promoting audio-visual strategies, including film making, multi-media lectures, and rehearsal labs. New additions of imaginative architectural design of seating and space allow for flexibility of pedagogical structure, providing instantaneous turnover from small group workshops and discussion to large scale dramatic performance and video production.
