Active Learning Classrooms offer tools and flexible layouts to support lively discussion, multimedia, group work, and presentations while allowing students to work using their laptops and mobile devices at the same time. Pace currently has six ALC's along with plans for the Classroom Design Committee to expand and create more in the future together with Building Services and Ed Media.

How to Get This Service
ALC's can be reserved as the primary meeting space for a face-to-face course. ALC's cannot be reserved for single presentations or events, however faculty can reach out to Ed Media to schedule an appointment to see the rooms and receive training on how to use the equipment.
- Fill out the Classroom Preference Form
- Indicate you would like to reserve an ALC in the Other Comments box.
Ideally, faculty should submit their request as early as possible for these rooms. For more information, contact Academic Scheduling. Alternatively, you can also reserve an ALC by emailing email@example.com or by directly calling (212) 346-1626.

Can I schedule a one-time session to use an ALC for an event or single class session?
ALC's are booked in advance as the primary meeting space for courses throughout the full semester. You can inquire with Academic Scheduling at firstname.lastname@example.org for special requests.
Does the room have audio speakers connected to the computer?
Yes, the room speakers are hidden in the ceiling but provide full audio for occupants in the room. Students can also feed audio to the speaker system by using an HDMI cable to connect their personal laptops to the classroom monitors.
Do all of the occupants in the room appear in the webcam's view?
Yes, the wall-mounted webcam installed in the room provides a wide angle view of the entire room. Discrete microphones attached to the ceiling can capture voices clearly from around the room. This setup is ideal for a guest speaker presenting to the class remotely, or for individual viewers to participate from home. If your goal is to connect two physical classrooms via webconferencing, please consider one of our Video Conferencing rooms built specifically for this purpose.
