To consult on auditoria, classroom, conference room, and seminar room design for renovation, and installation of educational technology, contact Mark Cohen, Executive Director, Classroom Educational Technology Services (CETS) at (202) 687-7610.
CETS designs and renovates auditoria, classrooms, conference rooms, and seminar rooms to incorporate the latest in educational technology.
The size and scope of the project, and, in the case of renovation, the availability of the room(s) in question, affect CETS time required for this service.
Implementation is usually undertaken during the summer, spring break, or intersessions.
Contact CETS as early as possible to plan and receive necessary approval from University construction oversight authorities.
At your request, CETS will:
- conduct a needs assessment
- design technology and related infrastructure for new instructional space or renovation of existing classrooms, auditoria, and seminar rooms
- prepare floor plans, elevation drawings, and plans for conduit/cable runs to meet electric and data needs
- prepare equipment procurement lists and bid specification sheets
- manage projects by coordinating technology installation and infrastructure upgrades with university constituents and outside contractors
These design services ultimately result in more effective use of educational technology. The size and scope of the project, and in the case of renovation the availability of the room(s) in question, affect CETS time required for this service. The actual implementation of projects is usually done during the summer, spring break, or intersessions. We encourage you to contact CETS as early as possible to properly plan in advance and receive necessary approval from university construction oversight authorities.
CETS intends to grow the university’s institutional memory, recommend our best practices, encourage further standardization of educational technologies, and better serve our main campus constituents. Because of technology’s rapid pace of change, CETS should be regularly consulted before considering technology changes in Georgetown’s many teaching spaces.
In main campus classrooms, CETS employs a design standard for technology installations that aims to:
- Provide a modern, flexible, and reliable teaching environment that serves a variety of pedagogical needs;
- Create an active and engaging environment for students;
- Establish a consistent and intuitive interface for controlling classroom technology through all classrooms;
- Ensure maximum reliability and up time based on proven designs, using standardized components and installation methods;
- Ensure efficiency of support and usage by adhering to CETS’ core technology and UCTS principles.
