What will the CLC look like?

The AGBU MDS Collaborative Learning Center (CLC)
the structure that houses both uses in a state-of-the-art facility.

  • The combined building will have a central covered plaza with dual entrances on each side, leading to the Library and Administration sections on both floors.
  • A promenade entry will link the school’s vehicle access point to the CLC building with a beautifully landscaped walking path and garden area.
  • The Library will offer versatile meeting rooms equipped with integrated technology, bookshelves, cozy reading nooks, open spaces, a dedicated room for volunteer leadership meetings, and a central, cascading auditorium for lectures or gatherings.
  • The Administration Building will include a welcoming reception area, offices, staff meeting rooms, a spacious conference room, small and large break areas, and ample storage space.

Why do we need the CLC?

The CLC is an advanced development that will help to enhance essential skills and foster a collaborative and team-oriented culture.  

Additionally, it is an invaluable resource for staff recruitment, training, and retention, providing educators with a dynamic space for professional growth and collaboration. Teachers can jointly develop curricula, plan lessons, and devise assessment techniques in this environment. 

Studies indicate that educational experiences characterized by active participation, social interaction, contextual relevance, high engagement, and student ownership lead to more profound learning. 

The benefits of Collaborative Learning include:
  • Development of higher-level thinking, oral communication, self-management, and leadership skills.
  • Promotion of student-faculty interaction 
  • Increase in student and staff retention, self-esteem, motivation, and responsibility 
  • Exposure to and an increase in understanding of diverse perspectives.
  • Preparation for real-life social and employment situations.
  • Improved social skills such as teamwork, leadership, and conflict resolution
