Abstract: This session will report on the progress of the Texas Woman’s University Future Classroom Laboratory (TWUFCL). The Future Classroom Lab opened in 2016. This new innovative initiative provides a model for shared-use opportunities to enhance teaching and learning for pre-service teachers and education professionals seeking additional training both on-campus and via distance education endeavors. In this model faculty are able to investigate a variety of best practices for use in training educational professionals.
