The McIntire School is located on the Lawn of UVA in Rouss & Robertson Halls, which include 16 classrooms, four computer labs, and 16 group study rooms.
Technology in the Classroom
Teaching can take place from a lectern or a central table; both are equipped with laptop and auxiliary connections to utilize the room’s audiovisual capabilities. All classrooms have at least two widescreen projectors and a large flat-panel TV at the rear of the room that serve as a “confidence monitor.” Standard data sources include a document camera, touchscreen computer (with DVD player), and chalkboards or whiteboards. All teaching spaces have wired network connections. Several rooms are also equipped with videoconferencing and lecture capture technology.
Student desks are equipped with power strips, and all occupants can access the University's wireless network.
