NOTE: Beginning Summer 2019, we are reserving the room based on the new standard M/W, T/R, and F block schedules, which will allow us to best use the space.

Because of high demand for this room, we are currently determining criteria to prioritize room reservations and we are open to suggestions about how to best do this. When criteria are finalized, they will be listed here. If conflicts arise for a given timeslot, the Teaching Academy Advisory Board will make the final decisions on space use.

About the TEAL classroom

The TEAL classroom is a state-of-the-art learning environment that integrates technology into classroom instruction. The set-up of the room is designed to help instructors design lesson plans and activities that encourage active engagement and group collaboration.
