When I was in D102, I loved being able to write on the wall. At the end of class, it really reflected the trajectory of the lecture/discussion.Instructor, 2014
The best exercises were ones where I asked the students to write/draw on the board their analysis of the text we read. They were surprisingly creative--the space freed them up to do mind maps, stick drawings, diagrams (and we had one artist who really got into illustrations!). We could then move around the room focusing on one student's thoughts and letting them explain what they had put on the board.Instructor, 2014
This room was a game changer for this class. Energy went from stale and restricted (and crowded) cause of our old room, to collaborative, lively and energetic in this new room.Student, 2014
Usage of the many panes for brainstorming were excellent! Clever outlet positioning made charging accessible and not an obstruction. Chairs and tables were great as well.Student, 2014
Whiteboards are less wasteful than paper; everyone can see your thoughts/pictures, makes discussion easier.Student, 2014
