Smith College Burton Hall

Smith’s new classrooms use an Active Learning model which involves a wider variety of classroom activities than a typical lecture or seminar course. With the aim to engage all students more fully in the classroom, students work in small groups, troubleshoot problems through experimentation, and work together on white boards. This new active learning spaces at Burton Science Building has programmatic needs that differ significantly from a traditional classroom.
