New Sterling Hall Collaborative Learning Classrooms
New Sterling Hall Collaborative Learning Classrooms

Active learning classrooms are gradually being added to buildings around campus, which is exciting news for those instructors who would like to explore teaching in a more collaborative learning environment instead of a traditional lecture hall. Space Management has designed three new spaces in Sterling Hall that will be available starting in Spring 2014 Each Sterling Hall Collaborative Learning Classroom (CLC) has six teaching and learning pods
(large tables with moveable seating).

2301 Sterling Hall (Capacity 48) Six horseshoe tables each with seating for eight

2425 Sterling Hall and 3425 Sterling Hall  (Capacity 36) Six round tables each with
seating for six

  • Each CLC has an instructor station equipped with a document camera, DVD/VCR player, VGA & HDMI pullout laptop cables, and a control
    system to select various displays. A ceiling-mounted video projector
    is also available to display pod monitor content or a separate image from
    the instructor station. There is one fixed chalkboard and ten portable marker boards per room.

  • Each CLC pod has a large flat screen monitor. Each pod is equipped with one VGA and one HDMI pullout cable for connection to a laptop, which can be viewed on the pod monitor and, if desired, on all the other monitors and/or the ceiling projector. There is one wired  internet pullout cable at each pod, multiple table top electrical outlets, and wireless capability in all Sterling Hall classrooms.

  • Instructors are required to have a passcode and key to use the
    presentation systems. If you have previously used a standard campus
    instructor station, your passcode and key will work. Otherwise, please
    visit: and complete the on-line tutorial to
    obtain a passcode and key.
