The classrooms are designed to faciliate active learning and promote interaction between students and instructors. 

The spaces include movable tables and chairs, multiple projectors and screens, and tabletop whiteboards. Many instructors use clickers or other student-response systems that allow them to quickly assess how well students understand the concepts and adjust their classes accordingly.
