1) Plan classroom designs with representative from students, faculty and staff to ensure everyone has a voice.

2) Eliminate the front of the classroom by implementing flexible seating and collaborative stations or tables. For universities with a high number of lecture halls, online collaboration tools can be used to bring the classes together.

3) Make every space an active-learning space by creating collaborative work environments in hallways and cafes too.

4) Re-purpose existing spaces for active learning without having to build from the ground up. For example, Indiana University used the building that once housed a swimming pool, to created a technology classroom with 16 massive video walls.
