Our learning spaces range from small group study rooms to large auditoriums with the ability to accommodate hundreds of students. Most of our classrooms contain computers and data projectors. Our staff periodically checks all spaces throughout the semester. We offer classroom training to individuals and groups regularly.
Our primary goal is to support pedagogy, removing barriers to student - faculty interactions by providing reliable technology in the classroom. Moreover, we provide, whenever possible, a consistent user experience in classrooms across campus.
