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 following information outlines the projects underway with project schedules and a summary of the work in each space.
There were two key requests from the ATC: install interactive podium monitors and wireless screencasting capabilities in the shared classrooms. Therefore, we will be working in most of the classrooms this summer to provide a more consistent experience.
Additionally, the University provided one time funding to upgrade several event spaces on campus. These include Prothro121 (Great Hall), Caruth 406 (Palmer Conference Center), ODonnell Hall, and ULee303.
The projects and schedules outlined are subject to change due to equipment and scheduling availability.
