Audiovisual Room website

Characteristics and mission of the Audiovisual Room

Room 503 on the 5th Floor of Building No. 14 (the Audiovisual Room) is used mostly for lectures and practical training (such as “Theory and Practice in Audiovisual Education Media”), which form an essential part of any teacher training school. This is a specialist course which is necessary to obtain a license as a community education supervisor, museum curator or librarian. The mission of the Audiovisual Room is to support lectures and practical lessons in specialist courses related to educational engineering and audiovisual education, which are an essential component of any teacher training school. The room offers the following two main types of support: firstly, it supports students aiming to become teachers as they go about acquiring the skills needed to use information appliances. Acquiring the skills needed to use information appliances can include basic knowledge on the different types of information appliances used as educational media, or studying evaluation methods. The room also supports the acquisition of skills needed to create teaching materials, which is an essential skill for students wanting to be involved in adult education. In-house training has become an increasingly important part of companies’ activities in recent years, including mass media companies. The question of what teaching materials are most effective for adult education has become increasingly relevant.

The Student Reading Room is a reading room for use by students of the school. The room contains textbooks used on the Teacher Education Program, books purchased on the request of students and textbooks and other materials used in lessons. The reading room contains a photocopier that can be operated using the same card used in the library.
