"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. "
