Welcome to the Center for Student Innovation!

The Center for Student Innovation (CSI) on the lower level of Booth Library includes three large areas: an Active Learning Classroom with integrated Design Lab and adjoining breakout rooms; an Innovation Gateway and Community Wall; and a Collaboratory.

The CSI is home to a variety of new technology, including a podcasting studio, gaming computers, 3D printers, large computer monitors, and a green screen, purchased with a grant from the Illinois State Library.To reserve the Active Learning Classroom or use any CSI Technology, make an appointment through this website. To learn more about the equipment available to the EIU community at the CSI, such as our 3D printers or podcasting studio, start here.

If you want to learn about the Center for Student Innovation's equipment, you can attend Discovery Hours from 5-6 pm Tuesday-Thursday (Discovery Hours will not be held during the summer). Each time a staff member will demonstrate a piece of equipment and will be available for questions. You do not need to make a reservation and can freely come into the CSI during this time. 

In addition to using CSI technology, the Faculty Development and Innovation Center hosts a series of workshops and a Teaching and Learning Community in the Active Learning Classroom.
