Learning Collaboration Studio
The LCS will continue to be open in its present location (SEL 060) through the end of spring semester 2013. Following this, the equipment will be upgraded and relocated to Stillman Hall room 135, where it will reopen for fall semester 2013 as part of the larger classroom pool that is scheduled through the Office of the University Registrar. Unfortunately, this means that the LCS will not be available to schedule for May session or summer semester 2013, so please plan accordingly.

In the Learning Collaboration Studio (LCS), you have the freedom to configure a learning environment with the layout and technology you need to experiment with new educational styles. Located in room 060 of the Science and Engineering Library, the LCS works in partnership with the Digital Union to promote innovative teaching.
The LCS allows you to:
Furniture in the LCS is not bolted down. All of the student desks are on wheels making them easy to move into the configuration that you need. Computers in the LCS are laptops, which can be used anywhere in the room, and can run either Windows 7 or Mac OS X Lion.
Call upon any participant to bring their laptop up to the podium to display their work to the entire room while displaying the podium computer on the other screen. Show a videoconference participant on the plasma screen. Use the two whiteboard walls or four moveable whiteboards for collaborative notetaking and brainstorming activities.
Bring in a guest speaker from another location using videoconferencing, or teach in two or more places at once.
