Teaching & Learning at Bay Path

Enter a Bay Path classroom of first-year students and there are desks and tables heaped with coffee mugs, backpacks, an occasional book, and an iPad in the hands of each student.

The professor stands in front of the classroom and doesn’t point to a blackboard, but rather taps on the iPad and a screen in the front of the class pops up with a question posed on a recent reading assignment for a textbook available only online. Each student types in an answer on their iPad. Using a special app for mobile devices, the professor asks for answers, and a student’s response—almost magically—appears on the screen. The student leads the discussion and the conversation—the real learning—begins. Welcome to the new classroom revolution.
