New site, new opportunities for instructors

As you may have noticed on our front page, the Innovative Spaces Program home has moved to Head there to submit your application for summer and autumn 2017 course by January 6, 2017.

If you’re an instructor, you can now also apply to be part of our first Active Learning Classroom Community (ALCC). This learning community was developed by UCAT and ODEE to deepen connections between instructors teaching in Active Learning Classrooms at the The Ohio State University.  8-10 applicants will be selected to participate in our first cohort, set to begin May 2017.

ALCC members receive:

  • Priority scheduling in an Active Learning Classroom for fall 2017 (and future terms as course is offered)
  • $1,000 toward professional development

ALCC members agree to:

  • Participate in ALCC Course Design Institute to tailor their course for delivery in an Active Learning Classroom.  Course Design Institute will meet 10AM-1 PM every Wednesday from May 17 to June 14 (applicants who have previously completed a CDI for the course they are applying with can be exempt from this requirement).
  • Attend kickoff event in July and participate in monthly cohort meetings August 2017 – April 2018 (final schedule TBD based on participant availability).

Selections will be made in mid-January, and announced in conjunction with summer and fall 2017 Innovative Spaces Program classroom schedules.

Interested instructors can apply now to be part of the Active Learning Classroom Community by answering a few extra questions in our new application form over at
