Thank you for your interest in using the new COB2 TEAL Lab, please take a few minutes to complete the following questions so that we can evaluate your request.
Technology-enabled active learning (TEAL) is a teaching format that merges facilitated discussions, simulations, and hands-on desktop experiments to create a rich collaborative learning experience. The UC-Merced TEAL Lab (COB2 Room 175) offers a fundamentally different learning environment than other instructional spaces on campus through the design, layout, technology and potential pedagogical choices available to the instructor. The TEAL classroom design is intended to help instructors focus class time on collaborative and practical application exercises.
The UC Merced TEAL Lab exists to provide an opportunity for faculty to experiment with a technological and pedagogical environment designed to enhance learning, and for faculty, the Center for Engaged Teaching and Learning (CETL), the Office of Information Technology - Academic & Emerging Technologies and the Office of the Registrar to learn more about effective uses of innovative learning spaces.
Requests for use of the TEAL Lab for instruction are evaluated on an ongoing basis.
