Higher Ed Learning at Wallenberg Hall

Stanford University's research into higher ed teaching and learning is best known as Wallenberg Hall. At least, that's the physical house for Advanced Resource Classrooms. Having visited a few of those rooms, I will cheerfully admit that I purchased 6 chairs (an award-winning Steelcase design) for grad students in copying a Stanford classroom set-up.

The driving force behind the physical structure is the H-STAR Institute for interdisciplinary research and, more specifically, SCIL. That stands for Stanford Center for Innovations in Learning. For a quick overview of the projects, use the Research Programs link at the Wallenberg site.
