Abstract

Excerpt

Like most teachers, I have taught in a variety of classrooms, from traditional classrooms with rows of desks facing the front chalkboard to laptop computer classrooms with rows of tables facing a teacher’s station. To be successful teachers, we must be able to adapt and make do with the classrooms we are assigned. Even when we have a say in which classroom we teach in, rarely can we influence how that classroom is designed. Though many institutions allow teachers to request specific classrooms, the final decisions as to where instructors teach can be complicated and are usually left to others in the university hierarchy: administrators, department heads, building supervisors, technology departments, and so forth.
