Q. As an instructor, how do I reserve and use Gannett 319 for a class?
Gannett 319 has been developed for use by the Center for Faculty Excellence, the library, and individual faculty and staff members. This space is designed to be used for one-off instructional sessions and is not reservable for general meetings of smaller groups. The room has five collaboration pods with two displays. A Crestron unit and interactive Eno board/stylus support collaboration and lecture modes, with a wireless keyboard for the instructor and each pod.
Interested faculty should contact their school’s liaison librarian to arrange to use Gannett 319; staff should contact Stephanie Salcedo for reservations. In advance of a scheduled session, users must check out the Gannett 319 key at the multimedia desk with their campus ID. A case containing wireless keyboards that interface with the computers and an Eno board stylus is available in the classroom. Basic instructions for using the Crestron unit in 319 are mounted on the wall.
Users are encouraged to bring personal laptops. There are also laptops that may be checked out at the circulation Desk, depending on availability. Gannett 319 was designed to be as intuitive to use as possible. However, there is a small learning curve to get comfortable with the room’s controls and technology. Users should contact the IT Service Desk for technical assistance.
