Team Workstations

Moveable, collapsible tables let the teams reconfigure the room to suit their needs. Chairs are wheeled for easy movement and stackable when unneeded.

Large, Networked Media Screen

The large display screen is connected for easy computer access (computer, laptop connection, wifi). The wifi connection will even allow the entire class to share the screen at once. Great for large group activities.

Small, Moveable Whiteboards

Moveable white boards allow for collaboration to happen anywhere as does the portable media display.

Moveable Tables

Need table space for large group work? Need less table space for smaller group work? These table lock and unlock together for a variety of configurations. All are on casters for easy moving too.

Easy Space Flexiblity

Tables fold down and chairs stack to make more open space. The Lab also features storage for materials for things like a class library and art/architecture modeling supplies.

Rough Tables

Rough tables provide a great surface for building prototypes or creating a banner.

Large Whiteboard

Sometimes you need space to map out your ideas. The large, fixed whiteboard is great for concept mapping, sketching out ideas, and working with a lot of content/data.

The Humanities Lab at ASU is designed as an experimental space in which interdisciplinary faculty teams work with students from a variety of academic and cultural backgrounds to investigate grand social challenges, to construct researchable questions that delve deeply into those challenges, and to generate possible approaches to complex, “wicked” issues like immigration, health, and climate change, for which there are no easy answers.

In a one- or two-semester classroom experience, students and faculty work in intergenerational collaborative teams, synthesize their research outcomes, and disseminate those outcomes to appropriate publics—in op-ed pieces, performances, art exhibits, public dialogues, e-books, videos, or other media. In the process, both students and the public recognize the generative nature and social significance of the humanities.
