Facilities Planning

The CTL has the ability to coordinate a complete service regarding the design and development of learning spaces.

As classroom models around the world are changing to meet the needs of the faculty and students, CTL can provide a research-based view of the best options in learning space design to colleges and departments for their classrooms. In concert with Facilities Management and the Architects office, CTL has the ability to coordinate a complete service from the design of modern learning spaces to the selection of equipment and furnishings to the final installation of furnishings and technology.

Classroom Design Considerations

CTL is a key-planning agency for campus instructional facilities, departmental media equipment needs and implementation of grant projects that include related technology. CTL staff provides recommendations and specifications and either coordinate and implement installation projects or act as liaison to other campus or external contractors and vendors.

Learning Space Design

CTL provides free consultation for departments to discuss learning space design. This service includes on-site meetings and follow-up meetings to ensure that we are addressing all of the critical physical and technological issues. We will also provide a list of specific equipment and estimated labor costs for the project. As part of the service, representatives from Facilities Management and the Architects office may be included if the project involves renovations or physical changes to the learning space.

Technology Installation

Members of the CTL Classroom Support and Learning Spaces staff are experts in the installation of classroom technology systems. The staff regularly installs multiple new systems each year and provides upgrades to dozens of other systems to keep up with the fast pace of change in technology today.
