Abstract:In engineering classes, active learning is considered superior because this method increases students’ learning result and improves their social skills. Keeping in mind the advantages of active learning, it is necessary to support teachers and students to implement active learning activities in classes. The University of Twente created an innovative learning space called Classroom of the Future, which is favorable for implementing in-class learning activities. Yet, the effectiveness of the Classroom of the Future has not been evaluated and confirmed. Therefore, this study aims to investigate in what ways the Classroom of the Future facilitates active learning and what hinders the effectiveness of the Classroom of the Future. This study is a cross-case study research, which involved information from the Classroom of the Future, interviews with teachers, surveys with students and class observations. The results of this study provide recommendations to improve the effectiveness of the Classroom of the Future, specifically in supporting the implementation of in-class active learning activities. The results can also be an important input for designing future learning spaces
