Higher education is experiencing a significant shift in teaching and learning, with technology playing a larger role in the lecture hall and beyond.
Higher education is experiencing a significant shift in teaching and learning, with technology playing a larger role in the lecture hall and beyond. Instructors are embracing a more interactive and collaborative learning environment.
Acentech’s systems group is at the vanguard of this evolution to define the application of new technologies in education. Our AV consultants design systems that enable educators to capture lessons, in both the classroom and the studio. Technology can bring educators and students together across time and distance. Acentech’s technology designs promote the sharing and collaboration of ideas in active learning classrooms and lecture halls. We understand that learning also takes place outside of the classroom and technology must be applied to libraries, huddle rooms, and other spaces.
Acentech’s acoustics and vibration control consultants work with design teams to create or improve the physical spaces where higher education learning occurs. Our work ranges from recommending room construction methods and finishes that control reverberation to developing 3D acoustical models that can accurately capture the final design. Our other services, including pre-construction noise and vibration measurement to assist with site selection and the real-time remote monitoring of construction noise and vibration, can be invaluable to the design team during the design and construction of sensitive university facilities.
Acentech understands that learning and innovation can happen in a traditional lecture hall, around a seminar table, or across the city, state, country, or world. The use of technology in a properly designed and acoustically appropriate physical space can assist and enhance educational experiences and make them available to an even greater and more diverse set of participants.
