Marielle Crisanti - Wednesday November 16, 2016
Calgary, AB, Canada - November 2016... Many universities set aside a
room or two for teacher development; the University of Calgary has dedicated an entire two-story, 40,000-foot building to this crucial purpose. The new Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning will, according to the university's UToday website, "transform teaching through the integration of teaching practices, learning technologies, and optimal designs for learning spaces." The Institute features innovative architecture and active, flexible learning spaces that seamlessly incorporate the latest technology-including high-end audio.
Among these spaces is the Forum, a 370-seat multi-use space that is employed as a classroom, lecture hall, and entertainment space. Providing a flexible, extremely high-quality audio system that worked optimally in this important space proved to be challenging. To meet these challenges, US national consulting firm The Sextant Group designed an audio system based on Renkus-Heinz VARIAi-series modular point-source line arrays.
