History of the M112 Team Learning Classroom upgrade

The M112 classroom Learning and Knowledge Center (LKC) interim project is the result of three years of planning. The Office of Facilities Planning & Management investigated capabilities and options in other successful flexible classrooms such as the MIT TEAL classroom. Additionally, the school held ongoing discussions with faculty and students to determine their needs and desires. To test the team learning model, during the 2004-2005 school year EdTech helped the Introduction to Radiology and Practice of Medicine courses hold dynamic sessions in the Fleischmann Labs spaces. The findings from these successful pilots helped inform the types of interactions and technologies necessary in the M112 space. Finally, the designs were set and the new M112 was built to provide the flexibility and the capabilities to accommodate the wide range of teaching formats in which the School of Medicine community has expressed interest.
