COVID-19 information and updates

Find the most recent updates here, as well as FAQs and information for students, faculty and staff.

The Wilson Building has 3 active-learning classrooms, holding 48, 99 and 108 students.

Each room is setup up so that each student table (or 'pod') has its own portable whiteboard and monitor.  In addition, each classroom is equipped with:

  • an accessibility-compliant instructor podium
  • audio and video connections at each table for student devices
  • wifi
  • a document camera

The instructor podium is located at the centre of each room, instead of at the 'front' or 'back' of the classroom.  The instructor can control how much or how little of the technology is used.  Instructors can, for example, determine whether students display their work within their respective groups or to the entire class.  Or the instructor can display their own lecture material on all the classroom monitors.  For some specific examples of how these rooms have been used here visit the McMaster Experience page on this site.

Peter George Centre for Living and Learning

The ALC in the Peter George Centre for Living and Learning (PGCLL-M21) holds 405 students.  There are 45 tables which each seat 9 students.  Each group of 3 tables has access to their own monitor.  Crestron AirMedia is available, which allows students to connect wirelessly to these monitors.  HDMI connections are also available for this purpose.  The room also has Echo360 lecture capture available, along with a document camera, wifi, and accessibility compliant lecture podium.
