Each year, the Academic Technology Council reviews and approves a collection of classroom upgrade projects funded by the University Technology Fund. Project requests are submitted by each school in addition to identified major maintenance/fixes based on the age or current state of each room. These are vetted and prioritized to ensure we are providing stability in the classroom technology while also advancing the technology in as many spaces as possible. In addition to the classrooms funded by the University, several schools or departments fund additional upgrades that are critical to their environment. The majority of these projects are conducted during either the summer months or during winter break to minimize impact to teaching.
The Covid-19 pandemic has altered our original upgrade plans. Instead of the original proposal of work, a new scope has been defined to prepare our classrooms for supporting instructions with in person and remote participants. Although the original statement of work has been drafted, conversations continue to evolve on campus to incorporate other facilities for instruction that can support social distancing in the classroom. As these are defined, the original plans may be modified quickly to ensure our classrooms are equipped properly.
