As the pace of Active Learning Rooms development gathers, CIT has revamped its Learning Spaces page on the CIT website and the Active Learning Rooms pages on the CIT wiki.

The Learning Spaces page on CIT summarises the types of Active Learning Rooms on campus: Technology Enhanced Collaborative Rooms, Collaborative Classrooms and Flexible Classrooms.

The Active Learning Rooms pages on CIT wiki provide more information about the types of Active Learning Rooms, their locations on campus and the rooms' capacities. You can also get an idea of what the rooms look like with photos for each room.

The active learning rooms, conveniently located at some of the faculties, are designed to facilitate project group discussion, collaboration and communication among students.

Technologies incorporated in these rooms are seamlessly integrated to allow both students and faculty to engage in content and project group discussion. These rooms are flexible enough to support multiple modes of teaching.
