If you have not visited the Teaching, Learning, & Technology Center’s Space154 lately here is what you have missed….
Last semester saw the “soft launch” of Space154. During this semester the TLTC Instructional Design (ID) team continued to offer our established Tech Bytes series for both faculty and students. We also added new programming for the space with the following series:
- Open Lab Hours for students to come in to work on projects and try out new technologies.
- Maker Fridays – In these hands-on sessions, we explore everything from 3D Printing, to Virtual Reality, to what is possible with Raspberry Pi’s and The Internet of Things.
- Custom workshop sessions available upon request. The ID team works with the faculty to design a unique experience based on course objectives.
If you have not been to Space154 lately we invite you to stop by during our open hours and check out what people are saying:
I haven’t been to the Tech Tips in a while and when I came the other week for a Faculty Tech Bytes and saw the space my mind just went WOW!

The professional staff of Housing & Residence Life recently had the opportunity for a team-building session in Space154 where we got to play with technology and create personally designed coins using the 3D printer. Our entire staff benefited from the ability to learn Makerspace software and think creatively like a graphic designer or engineer would. Riad led our team through learning the new software and navigated us through our unfamiliar journey with technology with a sense of humor. Our staff enjoyed the colorful, comfortable setting of Space 154 and now know that such a fantastic, team-oriented space exists on campus!

I was very pleased by the assistance my students received in the two sessions we scheduled with Veronica Armour at the lab, and also by the technology that was recommended for them for their class digital humanities projects. The reasons for this are:
- The classroom (a friendly open space that encourages students to collaborate and work on projects
- The technical knowledge of Veronica Armour, who worked with the class, and whose suggestions on which apps/software to use made their final projects work
- Space154 itself: our learning objectives could not have been met without the resources of this lab

I am very interested in attending the website design sessions from the 24th and happy that such a wonderful opportunity is available to students 🙂
