Advanced Learning Labs
The advanced learning labs (rooms 368, 369 and 370) are classrooms with computing capability. Each lab is equipped with an instructor's podium which includes a desktop computer, projector, DVD, VCR and CD-Rom players, cable television access, auxiliary connections (including for a laptop), and a wireless control panel to control the lights, projector, projection screens, and window shades. Rooms 368 and 370 consist of between 16 – 24 thin clients connected to the vLab server. (Learn about vLab and included software.)
The lab in room 369 is designed for flexible seating arrangements conducive to group work and discussion and seats up to thirty. Fifteen 15" Macbook Pros are available for students. The instructor has access to either a Macbook Pro or desktop PC. A 75" monitor allows for additional display options.
The advanced learning labs are reserved for use by the Libraries, EITS and CTL to provide research, instruction/tutoring, computing, and faculty development sessions for students and faculty. Examples of these uses may include:
- Library research instruction and tutoring sessions (both class specific and general);
- UNIV and library-partnered courses;
- Single session academic/ course-related class use (e.g., research methods, testing, multi software use/projects);
- Single session or semester long academic tutoring (usually scheduled for evenings)
Outside departmental use for purposes other than the above (such as departmental training, staff education programs, conference related workshops, etc.) may be accommodated on a case-by-case basis, but requests cannot be considered more than one month in advance. Long-term or all day use of the labs is especially difficult to accommodate.
