Sandbox Classroom and eLearning Faculty Fellows

eLearning has developed a flexible learning environment lovingly called the Sandbox. In the online world, a sandbox classroom is a space that is created to allow for instructor creativity and exploration. The eLearning staff has created a classroom space to explore innovative technology and teaching practices while continuing to focus on student learning. Since the Fall of 2013 we have had a number of classes taught in our Sandbox. Instructors that agree to be part of our Fellowship design their teaching to be more student centric. They typically flip most of their instruction to all the time in the space to be more productive for students. Below are links to the reports on the success and lessons learned.
