A new 4,400 square-foot space is taking the College of Education’s strengths in online teaching, learning and collaborative research to new heights.
Thanks to a generous private donation from Richard and Ann O’Leary, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign faculty and students have a new, state-of-the-art laboratory space to carry out research, teaching and learning.
Located in the northeast corner of the College’s lower level, the center offers highly advanced math and science labs and a live teaching studio for online instructors. The studio promises to make the online learning experience more enjoyable and personalized for both students and instructors.
It is home to a collaboration room, a main conference room, several smaller conference rooms and classrooms.
The collaboration space will be used by interdisciplinary teams engaged in educational research projects—everything from student-led innovations and early phase prototyping efforts through grant-funded collaborative projects. The space will allow for face-to-face, virtual and hybrid meetings. Learn more about the O’Leary Learning Center.
