Classroom Technology at Taubman College

Classroom Technology at Taubman College

Classrooms and Technology Spaces

There are 8 classrooms (1221, 2104, 2108, 2204, 2210, 2213, 2222, 2227), 2 review spaces (East and West) and 1 video conference/telepresence room (2224) in Taubman College.  Each space is equipped with projection and audio for classroom instruction.  There are no computers or DVD players in any of the spaces.

Over the next year, the classrooms and review spaces will be upgraded using high-end digital technology.  Since architecture and planning instruction relies heavily on detailed imagery, geographical information and data, the purpose of these upgrades is to provide the best possible instructional experience for both faculty and students. User instructions are posted in each room.

Multi-Media Carts

Multi-media carts (large screen LCD panels on mobile carts) have LCD panels (7) that range in size from 40” to 60” and provide flexibility for a variety of uses but are mainly purposed for studio instruction and small group meetings.  Reservations for the carts are made online via this page.

Video Conferencing and Telepresence System

The video conference/telepresence system is housed in the Saarinen Conference room (2224).  The HD Cisco system works with the University licensed BlueJeans Video Conferencing platform and can also be used to make conference calls.       

For immediate assistance with any of the technology in any room or multi-media cart, faculty, staff and students can contact the MiWorkspace helpdesk (2107A).  For advanced support, maintenance, or suggestions, faculty, staff and students can contact Jeanette Turner (jturnera@umich.edu; 2208F Art and Architecture Building) or Bill Manspeaker (man@umich.edu; 2115A Art and Architecture Building).
