During Summer 2009, UIC's Office of Campus Learning Environments (OCLE) managed the renovation of Burnham Hall room B10. This room had previously been a simplified multimedia classroom, with a mobile multimedia cart. The result of the summer project was a fully multimedia classroom with three digital projectors, two CopyCams for image capture of whiteboard content, and a physical setup that allows for a totally new type of learning environment. The environment emphasizes a informal setting with the simplest possible transition between lecture content and small group work. For more details on the design of the classroom, and its various capabilities, view some of the content below:Classrooms tab of our website. The classrooms are listed in alphabetical order by building abbreviation, B10 is the second to last entry for Burnham Hall.
Instructional videos can be found here. These videos can be helpful to introduce the instructor to the unique capabilities of this LearnLab classroom.
Clickers (Student Response Systems)
Student response systems can assist in many aspects of the learning environment to quickly and accurately obtain input from students. i>Clicker is the recommended brand of student response systems. All East Campus classrooms with a built-in computer are ready for plug & play usage of i>Clicker receivers. See the Instructional Technology Lab's website for more information about these systems: ITL - Clickers
