REQUESTS FOR THE INSTALLATION OF NEW CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY
Alan Filreis, Chair, Provost's Classroom Facilities Review
NOTE: This was the form used for the 1995-96 round of tech grants
sponsored by this committee.
The Classroom Facilities Review Committee has been charged by the
Provost to make dramatic improvements in central-pool classrooms.
(The Central Pool of Classrooms consists of those rooms managed by the
central administration and not by individuals schools or departments.)
The Committee's multi-year project primarily entails major
"integrated" renovations--typically involving seating, lighting,
ceilings, floors, podiums, blackboards, ventilation, doors and
doorways, safety facilities, along with the installation of the newest
teaching technologies, such as computers and projection hardware.
These large, integrated projects have been prioritized by the
committee and are being scheduled well in advance.
A separate budget has been set up for installing new teaching
technology in central-pool classrooms when such technology--and not
other significant renovation--is what is primarily needed. A subgroup
of the Classroom Committee will review all applications for use of
this budget to purchase and install classroom technology. Before
applying, please consider that:
- your request should serve to improve undergraduate education, and
you will be asked to specify how this will be achieved;
- you will need to work with a member of the Classroom Committee in
making the request (there is at least one member from all four
undergraduate schools; for a complete list of members, send a message
- only central-pool classrooms are eligible (if you are not sure of
a room's status, ask us at "firstname.lastname@example.org");
- priority will be given to requests that complement the plan of
major integrated renovation projects already set by the committee;
- the Classroom Committee does not itself support the technology
once it is installed (maintenance and training), and you will be asked
to arrange such support with your school or department.
