University Libraries Learning Studios
The Bierce Library Learning Studios are identified as rooms 61, 154, 274, and 279. The Science & Technology Learning Studio is room 23. These flexible, wireless, technology rich spaces effectively support instructor-led classroom activities and informal, student-initiated learning activities. Rooms 23, 61, 154, and 274 have mobile, light-weight tables and chairs that can be configured to support the traditional classroom or collaborative group work. The Learning Studios are open when the library is open, and students may use the space and technology when the rooms are not scheduled. Laptops and/or ChromeBooks can be booked separately for use in the Learning Studios.
Scheduling Learning Studios
Only University of Akron Faculty, staff, or student groups (with Faculty advisor consent) may book the Learning Studios in Bierce Library
Learning studios must be booked online, at least 48 hours in advance of the event. The Learning Studios are not available as a replacement for the registrar’s assignment of classrooms. University Faculty are encouraged to schedule activities and single classes that support their curriculum.
