With nine collaborative learning spaces on campus, thousands of students and hundreds of faculty now have the ability to learn and teach through active learning with the help of new technology.

University Distinguished Professor Paul Blowers was one of the first faculty members to make the intimidating transition from a lecture hall to an open space.

"The night before was terrifying because if you're behind a podium you're safe," Blowers said. "But then you get a little more comfortable with it and now I teach all but one of my classes this semester in a collaborative learning space."
