As technology in the Reed classroom evolves, at least two aspects of the past will remain unchanged. Somewhere in the classroom will be a surface where a person with knowledge will illustrate, outline, or embellish on a topic while others who wish to receive this information sit, listen, and learn.

These seekers of information left alone with this same chalkboard wouldn't necessarily employ it as a learning medium. However, add to the mix a teacher, and this piece of green stone, or white plastic attached to a vertical surface, becomes a fairly formidable tool to stimulate learning.

As can be seen on these pages, faculty members at Reed continue to cover yards of surface with the secrets of their art. And while we expect that advancements in communication and technology will continue to hurtle forward, we also expect that primary elements of the craft of teaching and learning will remain unchanged.
