The newly renovated Hodges Hall, located on West Virginia University’s Teaching and Learning Commons, serves as the home for the Office of Undergraduate Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies/Native American Studies, World Languages, Literatures and Linguistics of the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences. Hodges Hall now features classrooms, lecture halls, and and technology labs outfitted with modernized tech solutions for heightened learning experiences. BrightTree Studios has provided audiovisual, IT/telecom, and security design for this project.
Classrooms are designed for active and hybrid learning, giving instructors the capability to live stream lessons as well as record for archiving. Outfitted with 94″ motorized projection screens and powered with 7,000 lumen WXGA projectors, this design ensures that all students are able to clearly see presentations. Ceiling speakers receive the feed from both wired microphones and bluetooth microphones. Hodges Hall also houses West Virginia University’s LGBTQ+ Center, teacher teaming zones and faculty departmental suites, and a 210 seat testing center.
