Classroom Redesign

Lessons learned from the revisions in both the Fisher Center and the ITTS incubator space have been instrumental in evaluating and imagining other spaces across campus which have impacted additional committees such as PAC and Campus Master Planning.

In addition to the Fisher Center, as of June 2015, four other classrooms have been identified for redesign through a faculty RFP process. Updated equipment, functionalities and furnishings are considered depending on the unique use of the classroom.

A sampling of some of the equipment, functionalities and furnishings in these spaces:

  • Fisher Center: removal of fixed teaching podium with the addition of an adjustable teaching station, large LCD display screen, Blu-ray video player
  • Smith 002: webconferencing equipment: mounted webcamera, microphone, mobile whiteboards
  • Gulick 223: removal of fixed teaching podium with the addition of an adjustable teaching station; pod chairs
  • Gulick 100: removal of fixed teaching podium with the addition of an adjustable teaching station; 2nd projection screen, whiteboard
  • Merritt 100: removal of fixed teaching podium with the addition of an adjustable teaching station; mobile whiteboards
  • Coxe 8: complete classroom redesign based on a faculty group proposal with the goal to foster flexibility enabling a quick conversion from a traditional "lecture" style to "break-out" stations to facilitate small group interactions and active learning. Accommodates up to 48 students with 8 computer work stations around the perimeter.
