The Rosauer Center for Education
The Rosauer Center was built in 1993 by a gift from Jessie Rosauer. This building provides up to 18 classrooms; 3 of which have dividers to accommodate classes with small numbers. Classrooms are equipped with overhead projectors, VCR's, cable television and whiteboards. There are eight classrooms that were converted to media presentation classrooms equipped with a computer, VCR, DVD player, LCD projector, and a document camera for projecting documents.
As the School of Education is home to five departments, spaces exist in the Rosauer Center that are specialized for the practical application of skills. The Department of Counselor Education has two rooms for videotaping counseling sessions. The Department of Special Education has space dedicated as an early childhood center for preschool children with special needs. That same space is shared by The Gonzaga Center for Applied Behavior Analysis, PLLC. This space has been wired for sound so the room can be observed; the observation room and preschool are fitted with a one-way mirror.
The School of Education pioneered a wireless laptop initiative and has wireless laptop stations for bringing technology into all classrooms. These stations allow faculty to demonstrate technology in the classroom as well as provide for interaction online. Wireless Internet access is available to anyone in the building on the "Gonzaga Community" Wireless Network.
The Technology Resource Center is the hub of instructional technology at the Rosauer Center for Education. In addition to offering the hardware and software our professional candidates require, we provide them with basic training and technical support. The TRC is staffed and open M-F as well as during weekends. The computer lab can be used as a single classroom or partitioned in to two smaller classrooms. Both sides of the lab have full multimedia capabilities (computer, Blu-Ray player, document camera, 70" LED screens).
The computer lab contains thirty-two 27" iMac computers running both OS X 10.7 (Snow Leopard) and Windows 7. The OS X install includes the entire Adobe Creative Suite 5 Master Collection and Microsoft Office 2011, while the Windows 7 install includes Microsoft Office 2010 and PASW 14 (formerly SPSS).
