Library Rooms and Spaces

Room

This Room is designed for group work and student active methodology and may be booked by those employing research intensive or student active pedagogies in the classroom wishing to engage in experimental, student-active sessions that employ the advanced, student-use technology in the room.

To ensure that the Room is suited to the design and student-use technology in the room, priority of assignment of the room will be based on pedagogical criteria rather than a first-come/first serve or per se basis. 

The Active learning room is located on the 4th floor in the library extension.

The room capacity is 82 people.

Policy

  • The room is set up for blended learning design and workshops. Faculty ensures the desks and technology are returned to the design and default modes before leaving the classroom. Dots have been placed on the floor to indicate student desk placement. Faculty ensures that students return the desks to these designated spots before ending the class.
  • Please also make an effort to end class on time, as the next instructor will likely need time to set up the technology or student activity before her or his class begins. 
  • Faculty assigned to the room are requested to attend a workshop on pedagogical benefits and use of the technology before the class begins.
  • Room is available on Monday-Friday at 9:00 am - 9:00 pm, on Saturday-Sunday at 11:00 am - 7:00 pm.
  • The room is locked with keys available upon request at the Circulation Desk 3rd floor in exchange of ID card. 
  • In case of a lost key, the requester has to make a duplicate of the key at his/her own expenses in two days.
  • Do not leave the room unlocked or unattended at any time.
  • Upon the completion of the meeting turn off all lights and exit any of the technology you used before leaving the room.
  • Materials and personal items left unattended may be removed by library staff.
  • The room should be left in a clean and orderly condition, ready for the next users.
  • Erase the student writing space if it was used.
  • Use appropriate markers and erasers on the whiteboards or check them out at the Circulation Desk.
  • No full meals are allowed but covered drinks and/or snacks.
  • All mobile devices should be on silent mode.
  • The library reserves the right to revoke permission to use the room in the case of non-compliance with these policies.

How do I reserve a room?

  • To ensure that those needing and those whose students might best benefit from the modern design we would like to know the following before classes are assigned to the room. Please briefly answer the questionnaire below and send to iLH@nu.edu.kz. The request is reviewed by the Innovative Learning Committee, which is a Committee of the Academic Council.
  • We will contact you about how you hope to use the room so that we can make sure that everything you need is in place, and so that we can arrange a time for a brief orientation to space.
  • Your reservation is complete when you receive written confirmation from the library.
  • If you need hardware maintenance during the class or have a special request for equipment, please email to helpdesk@nu.edu.kz.
