Many of our original classroom designs did not include lecterns or teaching tables that had accessibility as a foundational goal. We are in the process of upgrading classrooms and adding motorized adjustable-height tables. In these rooms, keyboards and touch panels are now much more convenient for a majority of users to control and access.
In Beckman 107, the table can be raised or lowered by the touch of a button.
In DeMille 101, the adjustable-height table adds abundant space for the instructor’s laptop and teaching materials as well as reduces the wiring clutter.
In Hashinger 150 (Irvine Lecture Hall) the new adjustable-height instructor’s table includes multiple monitors for presentations and Zoom participants.
