If you’ve never taught using an active learning approach before, you may want to redesign your syllabus and/or learning activities to make optimal use of the classroom environment. Contact CELT for a personalized consultation.
If you're already familiar with active learning instructional strategies and best practices, but you haven't taught in a TEAL room before, contact A/V Services to request a classroom tour and technology demo session to learn all about the technology resources available to you.
Staff from the Office of Institutional Research, the Office of Assessment, the Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching, and ITS are working collaboratively on a multi-faceted evaluation strategy that will include gathering feedback from instructors and students, tracking usage of technology and space, and assessing the effectiveness of TEAL rooms and instructional strategies on student learning outcomes and retention over time. The evaluation will begin during the 2016-2017 academic year, with the first report expected in late summer 2017.
