Since announcing the unique active learning grant opportunity in November 2018, T1V was incredibly excited to host the inaugural Active Learning Technology Tour (ALTT) at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, this past February 20-21.
After receiving an overwhelming number of applications, T1V awarded the active learning grant to thought leaders from 12 different Universities. ALTT spanned two days and exposed participants to Texas A&M University’s new Zachry Engineering Education Complex, one of the largest active learning technology deployments in the country.
ALTT kicked off with a tour of Zachry and its Design and Learning Centers, followed by a networking dinner - providing the opportunity to create new connections among higher education technology contacts. The trip continued with the chance to attend an Aerospace Engineering class, taught by Dr. Kristi Shryock, which allowed attendees to observe classroom technology in action.
Participants met with Texas A&M Instructors and IT/Technology decision makers, resulting in an inspiring exchange of experiences about the process of developing and implementing cutting edge active learning classrooms.
Stay tuned for our ALTT Blog + Video Series, where we’ll be sharing more of our learnings from our 2-day experience at Texas A&M University.
