The Open Lab at Hillman is a new makerspace for virtual reality exploration, 3D printing demonstrations, and project consultation in Hillman Library’s Digital Scholarship Commons. Along with the Teaching Center’s Open Lab in Alumni Hall, this location is a campus resource to explore emerging technologies and exploratory learning through making. Check out our Open Lab at Hillman video for a peek inside the Open Lab at Hillman and the exciting technologies available for you to explore!
Our newest addition to the Media Creation Lab is a Lightboard that allows you to face forward while writing — giving students a clear view of your written words, speaking, and gesturing. Instead of writing on the board with your back to the camera, you can face forward and not lose momentum as you diagram concepts or illustrations during your lecture. You are welcome to experiment with the Lightboard and any other technology in the Media Creation Lab and you can reserve time using our online form.
Earlier this term, Pitt celebrated the 50th anniversary of an event that would forever change the African-American student experience at the University of Pittsburgh. In our latest episode of TC60, we showcase “Say It Loud: The Black Action Society, The Computer Center Takeover, and Transformation at the University of Pittsburgh” event. The Teaching Center's Academic Digital Media team chronicled the event, which is the feature of this month's installment of TC60.
