TEAL Classroom

The TEAL room (HJLC 228) is scheduled through Academic Technology. To request use of the room, please submit the form below.

The TEAL room has keycard access and special equipment. A technology orientation and access paperwork is required before using the room.

To best use the space, we schedule the room on the new standard M/W, T/R, and F block schedules. We will not be able to fulfill M/W/F course requests at this time.

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 TEAL Classroom Advisory Board will make the final decisions on space use.

  • 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)

Please contact Academic Technology with any questions.

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
