There is still space available for Spring 2015! So, if you are interested in teaching your course in Sterling Hall CLC this spring, please email WisCEL at <firstname.lastname@example.org>, then fill out the application found at: https://apply.wiscel.wisc.edu/course as soon as possible.
I’ve been teaching in this space (Sterling 3425) this semester (Fall 2014), and it is wonderful for active teaching! Students sit around six Pods — each with power, dual portable whiteboards, a big screen collaborative monitor, and a Hokki stool (which is amazing for helping wiggly people concentrate!). And, of course, there’s a projector and screen and classroom control console for the instructor as well, that looks like a jet cockpit but is actually pretty easy to control. Any pod’s monitor can be shared on the main screen, or the main screen can take over the pod monitors, etc. I like to put instructions on the main screen and let each pod work collaboratively on their pod. For more of what I do in the course, check out my course WordPress site.
The Hokki Stool wobbles. I love it.
