Space 154 – Comments from visitors

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.

Mondays 2:30 PM – 5:30 PM
Tuesdays 4:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Wednesdays 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM
Thursdays 4:30 PM – 9:00 PM
(Maker) Fridays 10:00 AM – 2:30 PM
