Large classroom entrance

The Price Science Commons has two classrooms suitable for use for credit classes.  These rooms were designed for flexible, active-learning instruction, and are scheduled through the Price Science Commons manager.

Our scheduling system is not on the same calendar as the Registrar's.  We check with the Science departments in the middle each term for instructors who use active-learning techniques heavily, but have classrooms assignments for the next term which don't support this as well as ours could, and collect requests to use our space.  Shortly before registration commences, we take all the requests and work out which we can fulfill in a way that maximizes use of the space.  Some of the factors we may consider include class size, active learning techniques employed, previous use of the space, and schedule which allows the greatest use.  The form is available here; filling it out earlier than we check with the departments will have no effect on prioritization.
