Tom Morton, lecturer of history of architecture and urbanism in the History of Art and Architecture department, and Tahirah Walker, manager of Teaching Support at the Teaching Center, developed and led a "Walkshop" on April 2 with the purpose of helping instructors consider opportunities to incorporate the physical space of our campus into their learning activities. The University Times followed along and captured the experience in a new feature article. The Teaching Center's Academic Digital Media team joined as well and captured the event.
