Processes and Procedures
The FRS will be staffed by a full-time IT technician with experience in academic and emerging technologies and with a strong skillset in multiple software packages such as Adobe Creative Suite and various 3D software: Rhino, Autodesk Fusion360, SketchUp Pro, etc.
Documentation of the processes and physical artifacts will be maintained to create a knowledge repository.
A process will be established where faculty can propose new hardware/software purchases to experiment and innovate.
In addition to the technology tools, the FRS will support experimentation and exploration through access to web and mobile development environments.
Faculty will be able to schedule time to use the FRS to work collaboratively with a limited number of students for developmental purposes.
Faculty will coordinate with the lab technician to arrange for technical assistance, 3D printing times, and to ensure the appropriate materials are available.
The FRS is reserved for the purpose of experimentation, innovation, and exploration that contributes to the mission of the college.
