Classrooms

There are some core pieces of equipment found in every Global Learning Space, including a touch-screen room control panel, a camera and microphone, a large monitor, and an HDMI cable to connect your own device. Some classrooms may have slight variations and differences. For example, rooms may have differing numbers of monitors, a broadcast whiteboard, or access to an in-classroom computer.

All instructors teaching in Global Learning Spaces are highly encouraged to bring their own device and adaptor dongle, even if a cart or in-classroom computer is present. Instructors teaching in a Global Learning Space on the Boston, Vancouver or Seattle campus who do not have a device to bring to the classroom may email athelp@northeastern.edu to inquire about loaning a device. Oakland instructors looking to request a device should visit the Prieto Tech bar for more information.

Transforming Teaching with Technology

Instructors looking for opportunities to incorporate the classroom into a larger student engagement strategy can review Learning Together with Teams on-demand (recorded) or sign up for a live virtual session:

Instructors who would like to learn more about using an iPad or MS Surface in the classroom can review on-demand training:  

One-on-one consultations can be scheduled to explore customized options: 

Schedule a 1:1 with DigiU for device connection questions.  Join in-person or virtually to ask a technology trainer your specific Global Learning Spaces questions. These sessions are geared towards faculty who have already taken the Global Learning Spaces demo and have specific questions about how to best utilize the classroom technology.

Schedule a 1:1 virtual consultation with Academic Technologies to discuss advanced teaching workflows in the classroom using Microsoft Teams and tablets. These sessions are geared towards faculty who have already taken the basic classroom training and have specific questions about integrating Teams or classroom technology into their teaching practice. 

 

Enabling Untethered Teaching

To gather feedback on the rollout of the new Global Learning Spaces, a cohort of instructors are participating in a Community of Practice (CoP), a community of educators across disciplines engaged in incorporating the classroom and Microsoft Teams into a larger student engagement strategy. This program is provided in partnership with Academic Technologies, the Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning Through Research (CATLR), and Digital University Solutions. Applications for the upcoming CoP are now open.
