Verizon Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

The Verizon Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning represents the newest evolution in education at Greenspring. Renovations in 2004 converted a lecture hall into two classrooms filled with sophisticated teaching enhancement technology. The unique project was designed to develop distance education possibilities for the entire campus. Each classroom accommodates 24 students plus an instructor and includes wireless Internet and full-motion video capabilities. The instructor can use large video screens at the front and back of the room for presentations or to view and interact with students at a remote location. Each desk in The Verizon Center has a monitor for students to also see into classrooms at remote locations. The Nursing Division currently uses The Verizon Center to conduct full-motion video classes in conjunction with several community colleges throughout Maryland.
