Looking to try something innovative (or even disruptive) to enhance student learning in your course? Want to empower your students through hands-on exploration of future technologies? Want to take a no pressure, no cost, introduction to virtual reality, artificial intelligence, gaming, media production, and a variety of maker technologies? The CITL Innovation Spaces are for you! We are located on the first floor, east side of the Armory building and have something for every discipline.
The Innovation Studio (172 Armory) is a 25-seat space lined with VR headsets, gaming computers, 3D printers, video wall, laser cutter, robots, drones, metaverse examples, artificial intelligence, and more.
The Virtual Reality Lab (173 Armory) is a small research and design lab, where people can reserve time/space/computing to work on virtual (and extended) reality research and projects. It also houses a green screen and streaming station for broadcasting and photography.
The Innovation Classroom (182 Armory) is a 45-seat experimental teaching space where CITL experts work with instructors to try new and innovative ways of teaching in person, online, or hybrid. Got an idea and need a space to try something new for your teaching, let us know.
And finally, the Media Hub (room 156) is available to learn more about media hardware to maximize your online presence without breaking the bank. The Media Hub is set up with a sample of webcams, microphones, headsets, and anything else essential for creating media in your office or at home.
CITL Innovation Spaces are free and open to all.
