The Wisconsin Collaboratory for Enhanced Learning (WisCEL) fosters instructional innovation, active learning, and high-quality teaching and learning opportunities by providing instructional resources, technology and support in multi-use student-centered learning environments on the UW-Madison campus.
What’s New at WisCEL
WisCEL is welcoming several new classes and instructors this fall. If you have been assigned to a WisCEL room, information regarding room technology, schedules, and technology can be found below.
WisCEL Fall Semester Calendar/Course Schedule
The current schedule for Fall 2021 can be found here.
In Wendt WisCEL rooms 410 and 410A WisCEL provides 2 lavalier microphones and one shareable handheld microphone for instructors and students to use during class sessions. 410A overhead audio can be attached to the larger 410 space from the 410 podium, but does not have a dedicated microphone due to the small size of the room.
In College WisCEL Room 3250, WisCEL provides a combination of microphones. We currently have one handheld microphone that can be used as a passable audience microphone or by an instructor/speaker and 3 lavalier microphones and transmitters, 2 of which can be used simultaneously.
College WisCEL Room 3255 has overhead speakers for in-room audio, but, due to the small size of the room, it does not have a microphone system installed.
WisCEL uses Shure transmitter packs that can be paired with our lavalier microphones or with instructor-provided Shure PGA31 headset microphones that were distributed by some departments. All microphone transmitters are battery powered, with replacement batteries available at the service desk.
Note: Campus-provided personal speaker and microphone setups that do not integrate into the WisCEL AV system are not encouraged for use in the WisCEL spaces. Our overhead speakers will be picked up by the personal microphone and will cause feedback.
