Faculty Interviews: Mosaic and Standard Classrooms
The purpose of the individual faculty interviews was to gather the perspectives and experiences of IUPUI faculty who taught the same course content in ALC and non-ALC spaces. The faculty interviews and analysis were completed by Debora Herold, Senior Lecturer, Department of Psychology.
In fall 2017, certain IUPUI faculty were randomly assigned to teach the same course in their area of expertise in two different learning spaces – a Mosaic active learning classroom (Hine Hall 118) and a general inventory classroom. At the end of the semester, these same faculty members were invited to participate in one-on-one interviews on their experiences. Individual faculty interviews were conducted with six total instructors from the departments of psychology, business, engineering and technology, and liberal arts.
