Teaching Labs

The New Brunswick Computing Facilities Teaching Labs are classroom-sized computer labs located in the main computing centers of each of the four campuses (Cook/Douglass, College Avenue, Busch and Livingston). They can be reserved for Rutgers courses or special training sessions for hands-on computer instruction.  A variety of departments, instructors, and programs have discovered and successfully utilized the Teaching Labs to modernize instruction methods using applied computer interaction.  Teaching Labs come equipped with a projector, projector screen and specialized software for the classes that use the Teaching Labs.
