The College of Health Professions will have a new active learning classroom after Room 2259 in the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow College of Health Professions undergoes remodeling in the first week of May.

Active learning classrooms comprise tables with six to eight seats around a monitor where the instructor can present notes as they lecture.

“It’s been set up in a collaborative design,” said Interim-Associate Dean Denise Webster.

The remodel will “modernize” the CHP classroom and allow students to work in a group setting instead of the traditional lecture environment, Webster said.

The planned finish date for the project is July 4. Webster said the remodeling will include electrical rewiring, installing monitors and redesigning to improve students’ line of sight.

Other active learning classrooms on campus are located in Pearce Hall, the Dow Science Complex and the Biosciences Building.
