Active Learning Center

This image depicts a panorama of FYW's Active Learning Center (ALC). The ALC is a classroom with mobile technologies, such as handheld whiteboards and tables/chairs on casters. Technologies such as SMART boards, LCD screens, blackboards, and whiteboards hang on the walls.

The Active Learning Center (ALC) is a room the First-Year Writing program was able to construct with a Steelcase Education grant in Summer 2018. The room encourages writing studio pedagogy and has been a central site for developing FYW's multimodal WAT curriculum. The program is currently studying the effects of this space on access and learning in writing instruction.
