Reflecting on Teaching Experiences in the Lab: Challenges with Classroom Design

Vanessa Cozza

Abstract


In this article, I share what I have learned based on my observations and teaching experience by first describing two computer-equipped classroom settings: University B (UB), a four-year, mid-size, rural, public university located in the Midwest, and University N (UN), a four-year, small-size, rural, private university located in the east. I discuss how both UB’s and UN’s classroom designs can affect teaching philosophies and ideologies. Finally, I conclude by reflecting on how teachers can overcome the physical technological environment when design negatively affects their pedagogical goals and student learning.
