Next Generation Classroom
Room 2102 in the Education and Arts building (the “Next Generation Classroom”) features an innovative collaborative environment consisting of four 6-seat collaborative stations and a videoconferencing system. At the tables students may use a built-in computer, or plug in their own device, which may be displayed on a wall-mounted TV at the end of each table, or globally, which includes all TV's, the main room display, and at the far site (when in videoconference mode). The EagleEye Director is a two-camera videoconferencing setup that automatically cuts to a close-up of whoever is presenting, based on voice-triangulation and facial recognition.

In scheduling a semester-long course the Next Generation Classroom, priority will be given to courses that make the best use of the collaborative technology.
- First priority will be given to synchronous distance courses that are offered on multiple campuses, particularly those that utilize the EagleEye system.
- Second priority will be given to hybrid or face-to-face courses that utilize collaborative technology and/or videoconferencing.
Requests to schedule the room for a course may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the following:
- Instructors name
- Course name and number
- Proposed days and times
- Brief description of how (and how often) you plan to use videoconferencing, collaborative, or lecture capture technology
Requests will be reviewed periodically, and a meeting will be set with the faculty member and staff from UCET and UITS to discuss course design, evaluate instructor readiness, and to answer any questions.

You may schedule time in the Next Generation Classroom for an educational activity other than a semester-long course. For example, you may schedule practice time on the equipment, or a breakout session for a class that is usually held in another room.
Scheduling one-time activities
In order to teach effectively with technology, it is important that instructors receive training on the use of the equipment, and that the course is designed with the technology in mind. Regular training sessions will be held in UCET, as part of the “Teaching Well with Technology” series, and individual sessions may be requested through UCET.
To schedule one-time meetings or activities, send an email to Joel Langston email@example.com that includes the date, start and end time, name of the meeting (or description of the activity), and video bridge number (if you have one). Please be advised that regularly scheduled classes have priority over one-time events, and your meeting may be “bumped” to accommodate them.
