Centre launches technology initiative
DANVILLE, KY - Centre College will begin work this summer on a renovation project aimed at establishing a series of technology-enhanced classrooms on the campus. According to Samuel B. Fee, coordinator of educational technology, the college will renovate four traditional classrooms to create environments where faculty members can easily introduce technology into the curriculum.
Each room will feature an instructional station equipped with a computer, overhead projector, sound system and ancilliary equipment. The classrooms are distributed through three academic buildings, offering technology access in academic fields ranging from music to physics.
Fee says the rooms were designed with input from faculty members on a newly created committee devoted to instructional technology. The professors expressed interest in maximum flexibility for teaching.
Plans call for the classrooms to be ready for use at the beginning of Centre's fall term.
