Learning and Teaching Center at the University of Maryland Will Transform the Classroom Experience
"The University of Maryland dedicated the new Edward St. John Learning and Teaching Center today, named for Baltimore-based developer, philanthropist and 1961 alumnus, Edward St. John, founder and chairman of St. John Properties. The 187,000-square-foot space, which includes 12 classrooms and nine teaching labs with a total of 1,500 seats, will elevate the culture of collaborative learning on campus."
“This center will create a new and innovative standard of teaching that accelerates interactive learning and will impact the education of more than 12,000 UMD students each day for years to come.”
"Focused on a student-centered approach to learning and teaching, the center features labs, informal study spaces, group study rooms, and technology-enhanced TERP Classrooms with flexibility such as tiered seating, mobile desks and swiveling chairs that encourage active learning and collaboration. "
"TERP is an acronym for Teach, Engage, Respond and Participate, which helps explain the fundamental principles of the design. "
