In-the-Round classrooms are a new kind of lecture forum with a central podium surrounded by curved rows arranged in concentric circles.
This type of seating allows faculty and students to see each other more clearly and feels surprisingly intimate, even in larger settings. Auditorium-style tablet armchairs are more comfortable than standard lecture halls, and support whole-class and partner-based discussions.
In-the-Round classrooms feature the next wave of audiovisual displays and offer opportunities for exploring newer immersive technologies to enhance student engagement and participation.
