The Technology Innovation in Learning and Teaching (TILT), formerly Instructional Support and Development, unveiled its new active learning space with a ribbon cutting ceremony March 26. TILT is part of the Learning and Technology Resources (LTR) Division.
Located on the Alexandria Campus in Bisdorf AA337 and AA343, the new area features a multimedia creative studio complete with green screen capabilities. Students, faculty members and support staff can use three Media:Scape stations for small group collaboration. In addition, the new space includes a professional grade broadcast booth equipped with microphones, digital cameras and studio lighting to capture real-time lectures and create podcasts.
In honor of Dr. Jean Braden, former Alexandria liberal arts assistant dean, the TILT team has created the Braden room, which is used for one-on-one technology support.
Since the grand opening, many faculty and students have already used these new resources for a variety of projects and small group collaboration experiences. Finance major Lemuel Garrido is one of several students who used the multimedia/green screen room to create a video for a biology class project. He is very impressed with the technology. “The service and the equipment provided are amazing for video projects. It’s suitable for beginners and professionals,” Garrido said.
The TILT team will continue to conduct daily Technology Workshops and weekly webinars in their new space for faculty, staff and students. To register for this month’s “Quick Bytes,” go to: http://goo.gl/Ky2NJf for faculty workshops or http://goo.gl/7uCd0L for student workshops.
