Advanced Resource Classrooms

VPTL supports four flexible, special-capability, technology-rich classrooms, offering advanced resources for class collaboration and presentation. These spaces are reserved in advance of the academic year so faculty members have the opportunity to prepare an experimental class that relies on those resources. Our VPTL team is available to consult with faculty on pedagogy and strategies for using academic technologies to facilitate learning innovations.
