Active Learning Classroom & Faculty Learning Community
The Zinfandel active learning classroom seats up to approximately 90 students, with advanced video sharing technology and will feature modular furniture to allow for a flexible, reconfigurable active learning space. We have recruited a faculty cohort of eight individuals interested in active learning pedagogy (led by Sandy Ayala) and not averse to trying new technology in the classroom. This group participated in a workshop in Fall 2016 on active learning pedagogy and participate in some structured meet-ups for those teaching in Zinfandel to learn from their experiences and inform the Faculty Center’s recommendations for best practices in new active learning classrooms around campus.
Learning Management System
Following extensive research by ATISS, and a Canvas pilot of 16 courses during the Spring 2018 semester, the Next Generation LMS evaluation is now complete. Sonoma State University will adopt Canvas by Instructure as our single, centrally-supported Learning Management System.
