Teaching, Learning & Technology

  • All classrooms are designed so that professors can navigate the room easily while remaining within a few feet of every student. Four tiered "case study" classrooms have two rows of seats in a horseshoe configuration to further encourage student-teacher and student-student interaction.
  • All classrooms are "technology-enhanced," including either a projection screen and data projector or a LCD screen on the wall. Classrooms are equipped with large flat-screen computer monitors that allow students to collaborate; "annotation screens" allow students and professors to add comments to computer displays.
  • Some student study areas are equipped with LCD screens so students can plug in laptops and work on presentations. The building features wireless Internet access throughout.
  • The Nesbitt-Johnston Writing Center triples its previous size with 2,850 square feet of space and now features dedicated tutorial spaces, a staff meeting room and a computer lab.
  • The Oral Communication Center nearly quad­ruples in size, to 2,306 square feet. It includes a 20-seat classroom where students can practice their skills and boasts technology such as digital cameras, data projectors, a flat-screen projector, whiteboards and teleconference capability.
  • The Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center grows to 3,650 square feet and features a conference room with a videoconferencing system and a "team room" where students can host discussions using an interactive whiteboard. Like the Writing Center and Oral Communication Center, it is now located adjacent to the commons area.
  • Next fall the Red Pit and one classroom will become "classroom capturing." A professor's remarks and the information on a data projector can be stored and replayed by students within their online blackboard space.
