The University of Calgary celebrated the opening of Mathison Hall yesterday. The $90M addition to the university’s Haskayne School of Business features new classrooms, study spaces, and gathering places. The hall also features a four-storey atrium with a round-tiered transparent classroom called the Viewpoint Circle for Dialogue. “The industrial model of the “sage on the stage,” lecturing at the front of the classroom with students taking notes has changed dramatically — and not just because of the last two years,” write UCalgary Dean Jim Dewald and Calgary Chamber CEO Deborah Yedlin. “More than ever, students need a multi-disciplinary educational experience, one that exposes them to complex situations and allows for integrative problem-solving in a world where change is the only constant.” Calgary Herald Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
