Classroom Equipment and Technologies

Bartley 2046

Evolving technologies continue to impact many aspects of teaching and learning. There is an increased awareness of the desire and need to communicate external to the physical classroom; there is need to collaborate and file share resources beyond our campus colleagues and students; and there is a need to address the changing learning styles of a new generation of students. Villanova has made a commitment to upgrade the teaching technologies installed in our classrooms on a continuing basis.

UNIT’s Classroom Technologies group installs, upgrades, maintains and supports multimedia and A/V presentation equipment in all registrar booked general classrooms as well as many labs, conference rooms and event spaces on campus. There are approximately 200 learning spaces across campus supported by UNIT’s Instructional Technologies group. In the past several years there has been an increased demand for high-end technology enabled classrooms. UNIT has addressed the demand by implementing new standards for classroom configurations which are implemented in new construction and in classroom upgrades. Innovative strategies for the planning, design and the operation of classroom technologies are incorporated with two factors in mind:  1) the infrastructure must easily accommodate changing technology; and 2) classroom space must offer a range of solutions from basic classroom technologies to smart classrooms with interactive devices, collaborative systems and recording and streaming capabilities to accommodate both the traditional and the distance learner. This unique approach allows us to transform basic classrooms into fully adaptive learning spaces that support hybrid, dual-purpose and flipped classroom initiatives.

If you are experiencing problems with the classroom AV equipment during class please call the Classroom Support Hotline @ 610-519-5631. We can often resolve issues by phone or a technician will be dispatched to provide immediate assistance. Even if you do not need immediate assistance, please notify us if you have experienced a problem with the classroom equipment that needs to be corrected so we can address it as quickly as possible.
