Student Resources

Students and EASL

The furniture and technology available in active learning classrooms promote key communication and collaboration skills employers demand when recruiting college graduates.

Students should prepare for EASL classes by either completing assigned readings or watching digital content before class. Faculty spend class time engaging students in collaborative activities and discussions with their peers over class content.
