Rooms and Schedule
The LRC has a number of smart classrooms, distance learning rooms used by our Shared Course Initiative, and a multi-purpose collaboration/demonstration space. Members of the Columbia language community are welcome to reserve these spaces for special projects, events, or as collaboration spaces with other disciplines and departments. To discuss reserving space at the LRC, please contact Piero di Porzio.
The LRC’s learning spaces consist of the following three areas:
- Registrar Classrooms
- Collaborative Spaces
- Distance Learning Classrooms
Distance Learning Classrooms
The LRC maintains four Distance Learning Classrooms for supporting the Shared Course Initiative, a collaborative project between Columbia, Cornell, and Yale, to share teaching resources for less commonly taught languages. For more information on the Shared Course Initiative, please contact Stéphane Charitos.
The LRC has two collaborative spaces used for events, classes and lectures:
- CLS: Ideal for student collaboration, team and project-based learning activities, and conversation groups.
- CALL: Ideal for supervised language drill and individual multimedia work.
The LRC supports three smart classrooms located at 253IAB, 254IAB, and 255IAB. each is equipped with an Apple Mac Mini Computer, multi-standard DVD player, video/audio conference capabilities, and 64″ projection whiteboards by Smart Technologies, which allow instructors to interact with the content displayed on the screen.
