What Will Huntsman Hall Computer Labs Look Like?
I’ve shared with you some artist renderings of what we
expect our tiered and flat classrooms to will look like in Huntsman Hall; so
today I’m going to include an image showing what our computer labs might look
Huntsman Hall Computer Lab
Did you notice that I’m choosing my words a little more cautiously
when it comes to our computer labs? Want to know why? It’s because in the world
of computer technology things change so fast that all we know for sure is that
we’ll have to be flexible if we want our students to be prepared for the
changing global job market of the future. We don’t know for sure what our
computer labs will look like when Huntsman Hall is completed.
If we cut the ribbon for the new building today, however, we
suspect our labs would look something like the picture I have included. We are
planning to have one lab that will include our Bloomberg terminals and will be home
to our best and most expensive cutting-edge technology. We expect the front of
our classrooms will have more than white boards and will feature some kind of
technology that keeps our students in touch with the real-time developments
that will be relevant to their education.
We plan to continue using the labs we have now in the George S. Eccles
Business Building. We believe that all of our labs will be on the basement level
because a room with large windows is not optimal for a computer lab.
