Active Learning Spaces

The HILT Room – Harvard

The Harvard HILT room was designed as an innovative studio space for the students of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. It is a highly flexible, technology-rich space with has been used for a variety of uses from lectures, seminars, workshops, as a studio and even for performance events.

 

 

As a technology-rich space there are multiple displays, screen mirroring of student devices, a floor directed projector, whiteboard camera to capture lecture notes, and many other tools such as 3D scanners and printers, document camera, motion sensing devices, HD video camera etc. The furniture is flexible allowing for more collaborative discussion in class and the room is designated to groups in 1-2 week blocks which allows students almost exclusive access to the room which allows them to work on long projects without disruption.
