Proposal for a staff development training room Julian Crowe, IT Services, Colin Mason, SALTIRE, Sandy Wilkie, Human Resources The three main providers of staff training (HR (Staff Development), SALTIRE and IT Services) are hampered in their work by the lack of a staff training room. It is increasingly difficult to get access to general teaching rooms and computer classrooms during the term, and in any case these rooms are often unsuitable. The University's demand for staff training is growing ever greater and we need the space as well as specific tools to deliver it as efficiently as possible. At present we are unable to provide external trainers, from other Universities or from commercial firms, with the facilities that they take for granted elsewhere, and this reflects badly on the University. The advantages of a dedicated staff training room are it can be made secure, permitting trainers to make preparations in advance of their courses computers would not need to be restricted like those in the open access computer classrooms; they could be made more like staff desktop computers, and special software could be loaded for specific classes staff training requirements would not compete for space with student teaching and conferences a congenial atmosphere could be created display equipment could be provided and kept in a state of readiness Proposed facilities 8-12 networked PCs/Macs with desks and chairs additional chairs, speaker's desk/lectern full range of display equipment: data and video projector, video player, screen, OHP, flipboard, whiteboard, 35mm slide projector modest refreshment facilities appropriate lighting and blinds I f this room is to meet the needs of all three units, the layout of the room will need to be highly flexible. Computer equipment will need to be easily stored, and trailing cables removed. Furniture should be modular and movable.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
