Getting ready for an in-class presentation? Starting on Monday, March 3, you can use the new Practice Presentation Room in the Library to gain confidence with campus-standard classroom equipment! Check out the key for the room at the Library's Circulation Desk, first come, first served (i.e. no reservations taken). The room is available for use by current Portland State students for two-hour sessions.
The ASPSU has partnered with the Office of Information Technology (OIT) and with the Library to equip and furnish a new Student Practice Presentation Room (Library #304) to enhance student access to Library services. This room will help students gain experience and confidence for their in-class presentations by providing them with the same computing and presentation equipment they encounter in Â“technology smartÂ” classrooms on campus. Additionally, this technology-rich room can be used by students for small-group seminars, discussions, and digital video-viewing sessions.
Equipment in the room includes a Klasstech media-center podium; Dell Desktop PC; VHS & CD/DVD Player with Dolby Digital Sound; ceiling-mounted projector; and a wall-mounted projection screen. The room is furnished with a modular conference table that can be moved into different configurations, a large whiteboard, and eight comfortable chairs.
