What is the Engaged Learning Environment?
The Engaged Learning Environment is a prototype for a mobile-device friendly classroom. ELE classrooms are available at the Harriman Campus Tech Building (T-303) and the Oak Ridge Branch Campus (Goff-313).
Both classrooms were developed as a collaborative project by CTAT, library services, and Roane State’s Educational Technology Committee with lots of input from Roane State faculty. We developed the classroom to pilot possible models for future classrooms in which mobile technologies and flexible furniture are used to create ideal classrooms for “flipped” classes and collaborative student classwork.
Do I have to schedule all my classes in the ELE?
No, you can schedule one or two class meetings if you prefer.
How can I reserve this classroom?
Harriman campus – T3030 can be reserved by visiting event horizons. You will need to log in and schedule the room if it is available. If you would like the room for the entire semester please contact your divisions secretary to make the reservation.
