In the first half of 2012, the Office of Campus Learning Environments and the Academic Computing and Communications Center renovated Taft Hall rooms 100 and 120, bringing support for a new pedagogy: active, or team-basedlearning. For more information on this popular pedagogy, please visit the Team Based Learning Collaborative website.

During Summer 2009, the Office of Campus Learning Environments (OCLE) managed the renovation of Burnham Hall room B10. This room had previously been a simplified multimedia classroom, with a mobile multimedia cart. The result of the summer project was a fully multimedia classroom with three digital projectors, two CopyCams for image capture of whiteboard content, and a physical setup that allows for a totally new type of learning environment. The environment emphasizes a informal setting with the simplest possible transition between lecture content and small group work.

ACCC works diligently to improve and maintain instructional technology available to students, faculty and staff in classrooms and computer labs on campus. Classroom support is provided through our Learning Environments & Technology Services office, which is centrally located in the East Side of campus to provide a single point of contact for any classroom support needs. Campus computer labs are available to UIC students, staff, faculty and authorized guests. Several of the labs are available for reservation for instruction or special events.
