Teaching spaces by use-case scenario

The following table shows the different types of technology-equipped spaces and how installed technology is suited for teaching both in-person and remote students synchronously. For more information regarding installed equipment and/or to check how your assigned teaching space is classified, click on the space-type. Information on using the technology in each space is provided on the space-specific page.

1 Additional technology, such as portable microphones and/or cameras, are available to borrow from the Digital Media Studio (DMS).

2 If you write on whiteboards, you will need to do so either on an annotation capable device such as the instructor station SMART podium, or use the provided document camera which can be used with Zoom.

Suggested approach for teaching in non-HyFlex spaces

Most laptops come built-in with cameras and microphones, which can be used to easily capture (record/stream) your lectures/presentations regardless of teaching in a physical classroom to a hybrid in-person/remote audience or recording in a private/office space on your own. If, in addition, you wish to have discussions or group-based work with students, there are a few options. One, fully-remote option is to conduct your session entirely via Zoom using breakout rooms. Alternatively, in a classroom setting with a hybrid audience, you could borrow additional equipment, such as a portable microphone/speaker from the DMS so both in-person and remote students can interact. Placement of the microphone/speaker is most important to best capture audio from anyone who will be interacting during the session. It's possible to do this, as a last resort, by simply placing your laptop in a position that allows its built-in microphone to effectively capture audio from anyone speaking within reasonable distance/loudness/clarity.
