Learning Spaces

The Global Studio, the Screening Room (INTC 226C), and the four Media Rooms (INTC 226 A, B, D, E) may be reserved in advance. The Global Studio calendar is kept in a Blackboard course that can be seen—but not changed—by the Studio Assistants. You may call 804-287-6598 and ask the Assistant if a room is available at a specific time, but you must then complete this form to make a reservation.

The Global Studio

The main Global Studio has 15 iMacs, 5 of which are positioned for use by two people. Additional laptops (Windows) and headsets can be provided for larger classes. Only faculty members may reserve the Studio. Classes located in the International Center may prefer to have laptops delivered to their classroom; contact the Studio for more information about this option.

The Screening Room

The Screening Room seats 12 and is ideal for watching video and TV. Video equipment, including a Blu-Ray player, is multistandard and region-free. Students are welcome to reserve the Screening Room, but scheduling for rostered classes has priority.

Media Rooms A, B, D, E

Each Media Room seats 3 and is designed for collaborative work on multimedia projects. Media Rooms B and D are equipped with VCRs; all rooms have DVD players. Media Room B also has a whiteboard and is used for SDLAP and other language tutoring sessions. Rooms may be reserved for up to 4 hours. Reservations take precedence over 'walk in' use. Rooms may not be reserved for private study.

Priority is given to the following uses:
  • multimedia production for language-related projects, especially classes;
  • SDLAP practice sessions;
  • video viewing for materials on reserve in the Studio;
  • video viewing for the French Film Festival;
  • language 'meet-ups', clubs, etc.

Please be as specific about your needs as possible when you make your request.

Your reservation is not complete until you have received an e-mail confirmation from Michael Marsh-Soloway or the student manager of the Studio.
