The Chab Weyers Education and Hixson Lied Art Building provides new offices and classrooms for Doane's nationally recognized education and art programs. The new building is designed to inspire teaching and learning in a collaborative work environment. Color, texture, lighting and acoustics are used to create a comfortable and enriching setting for students, faculty, and staff.
Four customized classrooms on the third level are one of the features of the education portion of the building. These specialized classrooms and adjacent faculty offices are used for elementary education, special education, middle school education and secondary education. Students can simulate classroom teaching with many of the resources found in the nation's top school districts. Additionally, material-rich support space is found throughout the Education Department for use in preparing their assignments.
Four lecture rooms capable of being combined into one large conference room are available as a campus resource on the second floor of the building. Seating and breakout space can be easily reconfigured for lectures and conferences. This upscale environment provides students and faculty with a venue to plan learning activities complementing classroom instruction.
