Singer Hall - Room 161 Renovations
Singer Hall 161 and 151 are two classrooms that sit side-by-side. In addition to feedback from students, the Faculty of Business Administration was consulted with heavily to determine the best use and design of these rooms. Through their directed feedback, it was identified that a flexible active-learning classroom was needed. A classroom that was designed for a flipped-classroom or group discussion-style of learning was missing from the classrooms in that area. Based on this feedback, Singer Hall 161 was designed to fit this purpose.
