Overview

Technology has propelled the college classroom into the 21st century at warp speed. To attract students and faculty today, classrooms need to be brought up to contemporary standards. Students are no longer encountering simple spaces with desks and blackboards. Instead, what has evolved is the Smart Classroom-jazzy, interactive classrooms outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment guaranteed to attract students and to stimulate the learning experience. This book is designed to share a lifetime of experience designing user-friendly yet technologically advanced classrooms. Seventy layouts, figures, diagrams, and drawings convey ideas and concepts, while 40 photographs demonstrate classroom layouts. These are not glitzy or extravagant classrooms, but thought-provoking models of imaginative, successful, and mainstream college classrooms that are durable, functional, and sustainable with proven technology that faculty use. Topics include chapters on Principles of Classroom Design, Types of College Classrooms, Levels of Technology, Architectural Guidelines, Classroom Standards, and include the most frequently overlooked details. Absolutely essential for college/university facilities planners and classroom and instructional designers, and other university administrators.
