In the Fall of 2020, with Yale teaching conducted remotely via Zoom and as part of the initiation of a new class, URBN 160 “Introduction to Urban Studies,” a team at CCAM (see below) built a Mobile Zoom Room used to broadcast classes to students Zooming-in, as well as in-person attendance at outdoor locations across the City and Campus. 

CCAM video advisor Aaron Peirano Garrison created a video to document the project and explore its pedagogical potentials:
