Princeton classes innovate to enhance teaching and learning

Office of Communications writer Emily Aronson did a wonderful story on creative classrooms and pedagogy. One of the classrooms featured in the piece is the Design Lab, where Derek Lidow taught his first offering of EGR 392: Creativity, Innovation, and Design.

In the story, Emily Aronson notes that "the design of classrooms themselves is important to active learning. The configuration of Room H200 in the engineering school allows undergraduate and graduate students to build models, collaborate on designs, critique each other's work and brainstorm new ideas. 

In the engineering school, rooms E311 and H200 have been turned into colorful spaces with adjustable desks, flexible seating arrangements, mobile whiteboards, and various multimedia components. The rooms allow undergraduate and graduate students to build models, collaborate on designs, critique each other's work and brainstorm new ideas."
