Idea Lab

What is the Idea Lab?

The Idea Lab is a new library initiative designed to support digital literacies at Humber College. The Idea Lab has three components: studio spaces, workshops, and online resources.

Spaces

The Idea Lab currently has four bookable spaces on the third floor of the LRC building at North campus: a video studio, an audio studio, and two 3D printer workstations. Our spaces are available to Humber and Guelph-Humber students, staff, and faculty but priority will be given to students working on assignments. Our current opening hours are Monday-Friday, 9:30am-4:30pm. These spaces can be reserved using the “Book a Studio” section below.

Workshops

The Idea Lab team holds regular open workshops on a variety of topics such as creating videos, building simple websites, and 3D printing. Workshop descriptions and schedules can be found below.

Online Resources

Idea Lab staff are building and curating a suite of online resources to support the creation of digital media such as podcasts, videos, and digital stories.
