Overview of Learning Environments at SLC
The college undergoing a revitalization process where it is re-envisioning learning spaces with faculty in order to create new innovative ways to support teaching/learning. This will be part of our larger Learning Space Design initiative outlined in the Academic Plan 2025. At this time, we invite you to learn more about the various learning spaces that are made available to faculty/staff/students at SLC.
Types of Learning Environments On-Campus
The college has a series of different classrooms which are retrofitted with specific digital learning technologies. A typical classroom would include a whiteboard, podium computer, and connectors so that faculty/staff may use their own laptop.
These learning spaces can also be enhanced by loaning iPads, VideoRigs, or SmartBoards from ITS. Learn more about these options below.
A list of classrooms have been retrofitted with specific cameras on the podium to enable hyflex teaching strategies. To learn more about these classrooms please visit the following resources.
Reminder: all hyflex classroom have been identified within the room booking/timetabling system. This list is also available via the excel sheets (see "Hyflex Classrooms" links). These documents are updated by our colleagues in ITS.
Active Learning Space
In 2019, the college launched two Active Learning Spaces (one in Brockville and one in Cornwall) and are using feedback form faculty/students in this space to inform our Learning Space Design approach for future renovations.
Brockville - Room 216
Cornwall - Room A344
