PULLMAN, Wash. – Numerous technology and facility upgrades were made on the Pullman campus this summer at Todd Hall.
Twenty-eight general university classrooms in Todd Hall received updated teaching equipment and minor facility improvements. The equipment had become outdated and unreliable. The new technology is commensurate with the advancements of display, data access and mobile connectivity and works similarly in all of the Todd Hall classrooms. The user interface has been upgraded to match the newer controls in general university classrooms housed in other buildings, like The Spark.
The Academic Outreach and Innovation unit offers classroom equipment training for interested instructors. The schedule can been accessed on the Learning Innovations website.
Heavily scheduled Todd 276, a 177-seat auditorium, received new technology, a projection screen and new room furnishings. The 27-year-old classroom seating, tabletops and carpet were replaced, and the walls given a fresh coat of paint.
The Provost’s General University Classroom committee members will meet this fall to discuss plans to refurbish classrooms in other buildings during the 2019-21 biennium. Those projects are contingent upon legislative budget appropriations next spring and a subsequent allocation by the provost. For general information about general university classrooms, see the provost’s website.
