Classroom Technical Services wins AMX Innovation Award (Twin Cities)

Classroom Technical Services (CTS), a unit within Academic Support Resources, has received a $25,000 AMX Innovation Award for innovative collaboration practices in higher education for its design of the College of Pharmacy's Active Learning and Interactive Video Environment (A.L.I.V.E.).

The new classroom represents a significant pedagogical change for the Doctorate of Pharmacy program in the College of Pharmacy. Rather than traditional "sage on the stage" instruction, A.L.I.V.E promotes student created knowledge, with instructors able to direct, coach, and expand student learning while providing a bridge between the Duluth and Twin Cities campuses.

The AMX Innovation Awards is an exclusive awards program designed to recognize innovative higher education institutions for their use of technology in improving the campus experience. The awards were established by AMX and the University Business Leadership Institute to recognize members of the AMX Education Alliance for transforming education through innovative accomplishments and practices
