The TEAL room (HJLC 228) is scheduled through the Teaching Academy. To request use of the room, please submit the form below.
Summer requests will be filled on a first-come basis.
Fall requests should be submitted before January 25.
To best use the space, we schedule the room based on the new standard M/W, T/R, and F block schedules.
Because of high demand for this room, we have worked with stakeholders to determine criteria to prioritize room reservations. If conflicts arise for a given time slot, the Teaching Academy Advisory Board will make the final decisions on space use based on these criteria:
- Size of the class (priority given to classes closer to maximum student count of 108)
- Appropriateness of the class for the room (type of instruction, interactivity of course design, need for features available in space, etc.)
- Familiarity with room (training completed, previous use of the room)
With questions, contact Morgan Iommi at email@example.com or 575.646.2204.
About the TEAL classroom
The TEAL classroom is a state-of-the-art learning environment that integrates technology, round tables, and walls covered with whiteboard paint. The set-up is designed to help instructors design lesson plans and activities that encourage active engagement and group collaboration.
Specifics of TEAL room set up:
- The room seats 108 at 12 large fixed round tables.
- There are two main display projector screens for an all-class presentation.
- Each table has 9 seats with 3 laptops each (1 laptop per group of 3 students).There is one table display monitor per table that any of the 3 laptops can be projected to in order to display group work. Alternately, the table display monitors can be used to show an all-class presentation.
- Each table also has power outlets and adapters for students to bring their own computers.
- The instructor station is at the center of the room surrounded by the group tables. The instructor station has the controls for the monitors, AV, and sound.
- The main walls in the room are covered in white board paint and can be written on using dry erase markers.
- Access to the room is key card controlled
