Get involved

The Armory Innovation Spaces offer unique opportunities for everyone to get involved in transforming teaching and learning at the University of Illinois. Here are just a few ideas.

Faculty: Work with our consultants to explore an emerging technology or re-imagine your teaching. Share your passion in our Teaching Innovations Seminar Series. Partner with us on project-based activities or let CITL serve as your client for real-world learning opportunities. Schedule your course or class session in one of our new Armory Innovation Spaces.

Students: Explore the latest technologies in our hands-on, interactive exhibits. Schedule a virtual reality experience. Collaborate with your teammates on project-based work in a high-tech ideation space. Practice your presentation skills at open mic night or share your expertise through student led workshops.

Campus Units: Reach more students with a sponsored exhibit in the TechHub. Join the consortium of open-access spaces on campus for cross promotion and referrals.

Corporate Partners: Increase exposure to your latest products through a featured exhibit or in-kind donation. Sponsor a showcase event to highlight the educational impact of your products and services. Work with us to gather student input and feedback.

Course Partnerships and Projects

Architecture professors John Stallmeyer and Hugh Swiatek created their course ARCH 571: Digital Technology and the Analog Object around a semester long project in which students are designing a suite of furniture for use in the Illinois Innovation Studio. The project involves five student groups, each producing a design concept for the suite of furnishing and a working prototype of the main worktable to be used within the space.
