Classroom in the Round

In-the-Round classrooms are a new kind of lecture forum with a central podium surrounded by curved rows arranged in concentric circles.

Even large classes feel more intimate in this In-the-Round design.

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.
