With all the information that bombards today’s college students, Professors are faced with a universal challenge ‘How to make their lessons intriguing?’ New education culture and fast paced life demands the teachers to change their teaching style to be more engaging and interactive. At RIT, to overcome this challenge we have introduced ‘Smart Classrooms’ which help to capture student’s attention by integrating teaching methods with the technology. The idea behind SMART classrooms is to engage students in a lesson by presenting material through intriguing visuals on a multi-media system that incorporates the use of Internet, PowerPoint, CD and DVD much more effectively than its two-dimensional chalkboard counterpart. Not only is the technology user-friendly, it is designed to blend into the architecture so that it becomes part of the classroom.
Technology not only helps to deliver an interesting lecture but also provides time and platform for interactive learning where more students in the class can participate and benefit.
The visual aids help students to present their projects, documentaries, seminars in a more effective manner. We are also using this facility for conducting different workshops for the students in the classrooms.
Our faculties are well equipped and trained to use the technology and deliver their lectures in the best method available.
