The Office of Digital Learning and Innovation (DLI) is proud to announce its newly upgraded Open Learning Lab coming fall quarter 2018. The lab will remain in room UW2-140 but will be completely redesigned to include a new layout as well as equipment upgrades for student use. These upgrades will support a more collaborative and open learning environment for students to work in and engage amongst themselves and with the lab support. Some of the equipment upgrades coming to include are multi-person workstations, a brand new Microsoft Surface Hub digital whiteboard, adjustable swinging arm monitors, and new headphones.

The goal of the redesign is to provide students with an environment that promotes active student learning and collaboration. There will be workstations that offer students the ability to adjust desk positions from sitting to standing heights—which will bring more flexibility to the learning process. Also, the DLI will be introducing new software such as free WeVideo online video editing accounts for students as well as supporting previous software in new ways with Adobe Creative Cloud. The newly redesigned lab will house Mac computers to provide students with the best tools possible to serve all of their digital media needs. The DLI team look forwards to continuing our pursuit of excellence in service to the student population at the University of Washington Bothell and excited to showcase the new lab this coming fall quarter.
