The USD School of Leadership and Education Sciences has a team of administrators, faculty, staff, and students dedicated to supporting the use of technology for communication, instruction, research, and professional development. Resources within SOLES include smart classrooms, Macintosh and PC desktop and laptop computers, and a student computer lab. In addition to the SOLES facilities and technology support staff, there are several places on campus, both live and virtual, that promote the use of technology on and off campus.
Resource centers include:
- Two walk-in computer labs. Each lab is equipped with an instructors sympodium and each station is equipped with a dual boot MAC computer. Software on each computer includes: Microsoft Office, Real Player, Firefox, and Chrome. The MAC side also includes: iWork, iLife, Adobe Creative Suite CS5, and Flip4mac, while the windows side also includes: Spss 18, ArcGis 9, Safari and iTunes. The larger lab is equipped with 32 individual stations, a printing station and is sometimes reserved for academic and training classes while the smaller lab is equipped with 24 stations and is dedicated solely to walk-in service.
- Observation/recording rooms for clinical work where students are able to observe and witness first-hand private interview sessions. Observing through one-way glass or recording the interview session students can analyze the session with peers or later in a classroom setting.
- A learning lab that houses testing and other reference materials for student use.
In addition to traditional learning spaces, other areas were designed for individual or group studying and work. There are two open spaces that we call “living rooms” where students can either gather to study, work on projects or simply socialize. Wireless routers are conveniently located so that students can easily access the Internet. The space on the second floor also includes two desks with computers for drop in use.
Team project rooms were also created for groups that need their own space to work on projects together. The rooms are equipped with table and chairs as well as executive white boards.
A formal quiet study room we call the “reading room” features executive back chairs, large tables, and a library that houses all SOLES dissertations and theses.
