The full-time members of the Audiovisual Services (Tim Hicks, Claire Skjellerup, Graham Espe, and Forrest Warner) look to their staff of 16 Student Technical Assistants to support everyday classroom needs, sporting events, and a variety of other on campus events. The students participate in three full days of training before the start of classes, learning how to operate equipment in TE classrooms, make video recordings, and provide most any type of AV support the team is asked to provide.
This year, the students created a mission statement:
To facilitate the interaction between the Hamilton community and the tools they utilize in this growing age of technology.
To put a friendly human face on the sophisticated systems and services supplied to the Hamilton community.
We consider ourselves to be
in the ever-escalating war between
MAN and MACHINE
