Integration of Information Technology in a Building that Marries Library and Classroom: Purdue's Wilmeth Active Learning Center

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Wilmeth Active Learning Center (WALC) opened on the Purdue campus on August 21, with the start of the Fall Semester. The WALC is a building that marries the traditional functions of a library and a classroom, by including such traditional elements as a reading room and stack space with library study space distributed throughout the building. The 27 classrooms are designed for active learning with a variety of seating types around tables to enable and enhance collaborative learning, coupled with state of art technology to facilitate the learning experience. Once the class day ends, the classrooms become available for use by students as individual or group study, thereby increasing the efficiency of the building. The response to the WALC has been overwhelming. Students are asking to have it expanded!
