Technology Enhanced Classrooms

Technology Enhanced Classrooms

There are about 600 Technology Enhanced Classrooms across campus, all maintained by TEC Support. They all have, at a minimum, a permanently mounted LCD projector and a computer console with an Internet connection. Preventive maintenance is done four times a year, and training on the equipment is available as needed.

Details about Technology Enhanced Classrooms by Building

The TEC DATABASE contains information about each of the classrooms, including what technology is located in a room, the ability to search by building for rooms that house particular technologies (e.g. DVD players, document cameras) and a link to the floor plans.

Innovative Learning Spaces at Auburn University:  Haley Center 2213

In preparation for the new Central Classroom Facility (CCF), the Office of Information Technology, in collaboration with Facilities and a group of faculty, students, and staff has redesigned a classroom in Haley Center (HC2213) and in the Science Center Classroom Building (SCC118) to be engaged and active learning classrooms that will seat 45 students (Haley) and 72 students (SCC). The new classroom building will house active learning classrooms. The purpose of building this kind of classroom now is to a) test furniture and instructional technologies and receive faculty and student feedback, and to b) give faculty an opportunity to rethink their courses now so that they can start using the new spaces in the CCF without major adjustment.

The HC2213 room contains "pods" of furniture that allow for group activities, with up to nine students per "pod" and glass boards on all walls to allow for more effective group work. The SCC 118 room contains 12 "pods" with six students each. The technology in the rooms allows students bringing their own devices (laptops, tablets, and other mobile devices) to connect to the projecting devices that can share student work with other students across the room. Microphones, document camera, and a virtual lab round out the equipment in the room.

Timeline for this project: 

Fall 2013:  Haley Center EASL open for first round of classes
Fall 2014:  SCC EASL open for first round of classes

Faculty development opportunities are offered by the Biggio Center and Dr. Wiebke Kuhn, to be started in January, 2013, and assessment procedures for assessment of the instructional technologies, the furniture, and the space as a whole are ongoing to provide feedback for the new CCF.  For more information, visit auburn.edu/easl
