Designing Active Learning Initiative (DALI)
The Designing Active Learning (DALI) initiative was created primarily to evaluate and refine City's current teaching and learning spaces. From the summer of 2015 to the present, DALI has undertaken a renovation of all audio visual equipment in most of City's learning spaces. The project looked specifically at in-class technologies with a particular focus at the way staff interact with those technologies. The in-class technologies incorporates the Teaching AV Podium or POD, and extends to the teaching zone that surrounds it. The project has refined City’s spaces such as lecture theatres, seminar rooms. The project also used staff and student feedback to evaluate the way the technology in the room can engage the learner more actively.
More information about DALI can be found on the Learning at City blog.
