Classroom Technology Updates
Technology in many classrooms around campus are being upgraded this summer, mostly in Davidson, Welte, Kaiser and Maria Sanford halls. Upgrades include the new Crestron control systems with a touch panel controller, a new 16:9 computer monitor, HDMI input for portable devices, digital document cameras and wooden teaching lecterns. In the new lecterns, the document camera is located in the pull out drawer and instructions are located on the lectern.
Faculty especially those teaching in Davidson, Kaiser and Welte are invited to attend and learn about the new instructor workstations. Faculty may attend any session and at any location. There is no need to register. We will be offering additional training opportunities closer to the start of the semester as additional rooms are ready for use.
