Teaching room facilities
The Teaching Room Support Group provides a call out service for University staff requiring urgent help operating audio visual (AV) facilities in centrally timetabled rooms. Staff are located across the University so that they can respond quickly and minimise disruption to the teaching timetable.
Arrangements for the demonstration of AV facilities can also be made.
Many centrally timetabled rooms are equipped with AV systems which include:
presentation audio system
connections for a laptop and auxiliary video devices
A full list of the facilities and equipment in each room is available from the Timetabling office.
If the room does not have the required facilities, portable equipment including digital audio recording kits, and audience response systems is available on request.
