Stinson Collaborative Commons open house is April 28

Please join us for an Open House on Wednesday, April 28, 2010 from 2:00-4:00 to see this newly re-designed space! Formerly known as the Laundry Lab in the Language and Computer Labs Building, the newly renovated Stinson Collaborative Commons is now open to NCSU students. Lab hours and location.

The space has been renovated to accommodate and encourage collaborative learning, with consideration to both comfort and technology:

  • Furniture and Technology:
    • Produced by Steelecase, a media:scape collaborative area “integrating furniture and technology” is designed to “remove barriers that support leader-led presentations that were shared one person at at time to democratize how people access and share information by allowing all participants to contribute their ideas—quickly and seamlessly.”

  • Furniture
    • 10 movable tables with 20 chairs intended for a study environment
    • 7 lounge chairs that can be configured as a chair, love seat, or couch
  • Technology
    • A flyspace area, with two PCs and room for two laptop connections
    • In a traditional “lab setting,” 9 PCs and 1 Mac
    • An image-capturing system that will allow the saving of whiteboard contents to a flash drive
    • A charging station for laptops, cell phones, and other mobile technology
    • 2 printers (black-and-white)
