Renovation of Room 200A GG

 

        One piece of progress for the University of Georgia Department of Geology in the early 2000s was the renovation of the Department's principal lecture hall, Room 200A, under the leadership of Head Susan T. Goldstein and Associate Head Michael F. Roden.  Out went seats that dated from the last months of the Eisenhower administration and a projection cabinet from which slides were shown, and in came modern seating, modern computer-driven projection of lecture materials, and more comfortable flooring.  These before-and-after images show some of the changes:

Out with chalkboards (literally a stone-age technology) and in with whiteboards:

Our old projection cabinet and auxiliary projector shelf - gone:

and the old chairs with fixed writing platforms, gone as well:

Of course, between the before and after, there was an in-between:

        This was the first of a series of renovations of classrooms used by the Department of Geology.  They were funded by Major Repair and Renovation (MRR) allocations from the University as the result of proposals written by Associate Head (2000-2006) and Head (2006-onwards) Michael F. Roden. Another later project was the renovation of Room 327.
