Teaching with Technology Lunch: Designing Classrooms to Support Teaching and Learning

The college resource that most directly impacts Allegheny’s fundamental objective of educating students is the campus classroom. To ensure that this vital resource meets the broadest needs in the most efficient manner possible, it is important to facilitate dialogue between those that use and those that provide support for these classrooms.

This lunchtime forum will provide an opportunity for faculty to offer feedback on how they use, or would like to use technology, in their classes. Representatives from Instructional Technology, Physical Plant, the Registrar’s Office, and User Services will be on hand to share in this discussion. The goal of the forum will be to develop a better understanding of how classrooms are currently being used and how they will need to evolve in order to support teaching and learning over the next five years.

Lunch will be served at noon on March 12 in Campus Center room 302. The discussion will begin at 12:20. Please click here to register.

Public Labs: Saving Files and Routine Maintenance

As you’re working in the public computer labs on finals, comps, etc., please remember that the data you save to the computers does not stay there.  

 User profiles and files are removed when a system reboots to keep the computers running efficiently.  Make sure you do not lose your files by saving your work regularly to Google Drive, Sakai, a USB drive, or another storage device while working on important documents in the labs.

Also, keep in mind that Computing Service conducts routine maintenance in the labs after hours.  If you find yourself working in a public lab after 2:00 AM you run the risk of being interrupted and losing files as software and security settings are updated.
Should you have questions about any of this, please be sure to contact Computing Services.  User Support Specialist will be happy to discuss how to protect your work and our computer update practices.
