UD is known internationally as a leader in problem-based, hands-on learning. The floor includes one problem-based learning classroom and two instructional labs.
With classrooms and instructional laboratories side-by-side in the building, students will move freely back and forth between both, avoiding the disconnect between lecture content and lab work that can occur in more traditional settings.
The three general instruction classrooms on this floor, each accommodating 40 students, will be ideal settings for interdisciplinary classes that do not require laboratory space. They include the latest in educational technology and mobile furniture allowing for flexibility of seating arrangements to suit group or individual work.
This floor will house a shared a shared 2,940-square-foot synthesis suite. Faculty from various disciplines will populate the floor's research labs and offices. The leaders of the three research centers housed in ISE Lab will have offices on this floor: the Delaware Environmental Institute, the Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation and the University of Delaware Energy Institute.
In addition, one large, open lab space will accommodate three research teams from three different departments. This proximity allows for improved interdisciplinary exploration.
Two group study rooms, one smaller, one larger, create spaces for students to learn together, prepare for tests, work on joint assignments and generate new ideas in a comfortable environment.
