Policies and Procedures

The Electronic Active Learning Classrooms and Teaching Lab are primarily used by faculty teaching regularly-scheduled university courses which make extensive regular use of multimedia materials, network communications, and/or active learning. Faculty members who wish to teach a course in a Center classroom must complete the Classroom Request Form which includes a course syllabus and a description of the specific technology and/or active learning plans for the course. For detailed explanation of the approval process refer to our procedure for approval and assignment of Electronic Active Learning Classrooms and Teaching Lab.

There are limited times that the Center Classrooms and Teaching Lab are available for ad hoc usage. Faculty who are interested in reserving the Electronic Classrooms and Teaching Lab on an ad hoc basis should complete the Classroom Request Form. Only faculty who have been trained to use the equipment can reserve the the Center’s Classrooms and Teaching Lab. Periodic training sessions are scheduled. Call the Center to sign-up.

Usage of facilities by external groups may be scheduled at the discretion of Center management and requires the sponsoring organization’s support of Center activities.
