The Collaborative Learning Room
The Collaborative Learning Room on the second floor of the Birnbaum Library is an ideal place for groups to meet for study and project preparation. The room provides an exciting space in the library that will foster an engaging learning environment for students in a relaxed atmosphere that is complete with the latest technological opportunities. The space is infused with readily available technology that includes multimedia production workstations, laptops, cameras, voice recorders, and camcorders that are all available for borrowing through the room’s Technical Help Desk.
The space contains two meeting rooms, one equipped with Smartboard technology and the other containing videoconference equipment that will allow students in the Birnbaum Library to collaborate with students in the Mortola Library on the Pleasantville campus. The Collaborative Learning Room also has audio visual projection capabilities that will allow groups to work together to prepare and practice their presentations before having to make them in the classroom.
Technical assistants located within the room will support students with their technological projects and needs. All of this takes place in a space created with student friendly and cutting edge interior design work. The Collaborative Learning Room is hoped to serve as an initial phase in the development of a Learning Commons for the Pace Library
