Originally constructed in 1977, the Mode L. Stone Building was expanded and renovated 30 years later to become one of the most unique and celebrated buildings on campus. It’s a stately facility, but the real inspiration comes when you set foot inside. The sweeping curves and open lobby welcome you into a building where you will spend a lot of time on your path to a career in education. The same building that features cozy study nooks and inviting window seats is also filled with some of the most advanced technology in education and sports psychology. Not to mention hallways populated with other people passionate about education.
The LRC is where you go for technological support services, lab and classroom facilities, multimedia equipment, or just a quiet study area for you or a small group of friends.
This dynamic learning environment gives you hands-on access to various instructional technologies, as well as the practical knowledge of how they can be embedded into your future career in teaching, learning, assessment, and research. This facility houses technologies for all aspects of education, from Pre-K through graduate, and ensures our students meet rigorous accreditation requirements, state standards, and accomplished practices. Technologies include SmartBoards, Smart interactive projector, Smart 3D doc cam, Google Glass, 3D area, gaming area, iPad, e-readers, tablets, LiveScribe pens, and a commitment to introduce exciting new technologies as they are developed.
As a student of the College of Education, you have access to the advanced technology in the Sports Psychology Lab – biofeedback, eye-tracking, perceptual and reaction time equipment. The lab is the site of many innovative studies in sport/exercise and a great resource for students studying Sports Psychology.
The Cyber Lounge is a great place to get away from it all. Equipped with two plasma TVs, a comfortable seating area and a “laptop bar,” this is a spot where you can catch up on e-mail, get ahead of homework, or just take a quiet break from a hectic day.
This unique space, utilized by the Visual Disabilities program, is where College of Education students learn adaptive techniques for teaching children with low or no vision to accomplish essential living skills and achieve greater independence as adults. The Daily Living Skills Lab is equipped with kitchen and laundry facilities, as well as living and bedroom areas.
