Continuing Your Education in Smart Classrooms!
This fall the Seminary opened its new Erdman Hall Conference Center, a high-tech companion building to the Erdman Hall guest rooms and offices that debuted a year ago at the Center of Continuing Education.
The classroom, named the Jack Cooper Conference Room in honor of PTSs first director of continuing education, seats sixty people at desks with individual connections to the Internet and connections for laptops, and has a rear-screen projection system, a touch screen that controls lighting, and audio/video conferencing capabilities. The desk lectern from which leaders speak and control powerpoint and web presentations is fitted for leaders with disabilities.
Joyce C. Tucker, dean of continuing education, hopes the conference center will highlight hospitality. Both Jack Cooper and Dolores Bedford Clarke [an alumna in the Class of 1990 who lived in Erdman Hall when it was a dorm and for whom the new lounge is named] personify the gift of hospitality, Tucker says. We want all of our guests to learn here, but also to rest and to be renewed.
The facility, which also houses two handicap-accessible bathrooms, was designed by the architectural firm Ewing Cole Cherry Brott.
