Apply to teach one of your courses in EPIC (Enhancing Pedagogy through Innovative Classrooms), located in the Student Success Center. EPIC is a collaborative community that cultivates learning through innovative planning, uses, and study of pedagogies, technologies, and spaces. 

EPIC features eight of the university’s most innovation classrooms—designed for faculty by faculty. Most rooms feature wall-to-wall writable whiteboard surfaces, movable teaching stations, and flexible furniture. Two of the classrooms are designed for team and group instruction, wherein students can sit at specially outfitted learning pods that include a table, plug-in points for tablets and computers, and a dedicated LCD screen. Additional room sizes and configurations can be found on the EPIC spaces pages.

Comprised of instructional faculty, the EPIC selection committee bi-annually seeks proposals from faculty who are interested in teaching in these innovative classrooms.
