Teaching, Learning, and Innovation Center: Our Co-location, Facilitators: Christi Amato and Dair Arnold
The Innovation Lab will be an open, inviting, and high infusion technological space designed with digital transformation in mind. Co-located with the CTL and eLearning Division, and inspired by centers for innovation in both public and private sector enterprises, the lab will support projects, partnerships, and other innovative opportunities in teaching and learning spaces. All Sinclair faculty, staff, and shareholders will have a place in the lab as it will rely on collaboration, flexibility, and niche services for faculty, staff, and students. Planned services include: triaged focused tech help and loanable equipment, a makerspace, self-service interactive/media creation spaces, coaching, workshops, a ‘try it before you buy it’ work area, and more.

The RFQ was recently advertised and we are in the process of selecting a firm for this exciting new space which will be located in Building 4.
