Visit the Center for Pedagogy in Arts and Design's teaching lab open house

October 21, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- The University community is invited to explore Penn State's Center for Pedagogy in Arts and Design (C-PAD) and Teaching and Learning with Technology's (TLT) recently renovated experimental classroom in Borland 113. The open house will take place from 4 to 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21.

The space is part of Penn State's growing catalogue of active-learning, experimental rooms that research various teaching methods and how they impact learning. C-PAD's new teaching lab is unique because it is designed specifically to support coursework related to design, visual arts, and performing arts.

Its features include: an observation room where pre-service teachers or other instructors can view classes in real-time; tailored technology such as theatrical lighting, surround sound, and an interactive display for sharing graphic designs; and flexible furniture like height-adjustable tables on wheels with writable, flip-top surfaces.

Penn State faculty are invited to attend the open house to learn more about the room's features and what active-learning spaces, such as the teaching lab, are capable of accomplishing.

C-PAD is a partnership between the College of Arts and Architecture and TLT.
