With UCF moving in the direction of active learning classrooms, we need a space to “play” with the furniture and technologies we are considering using. The Sandbox is a collaboration between the Faculty Center, the Office of Instructional Resources (OIR) and UCF Information Technology (IT). This is a space where we can experiment with various pedagogies, furnitures, collaborative tools, and other technologies that might get scaled up to the rest of the university. See the video below, courtesy of CDL Video Services, for more information about the Sandbox.
Can I Teach in the Sandbox?
Applicants must have either completed a Course Innovation Project about Active Learning Spaces at the Faculty Center, or commit to a one- to two-hour individual training session with the Office of Instructional Resources. The application can be accessed here.
