The Teaching Commons is a collection of resources on teaching and learning. It is a collaboration between academic partners across the university.
The majority of classrooms at DePaul are technology-equipped classrooms. Specialty rooms, including PC classrooms, exist across the university for classes with specific needs. Additional technology is available upon request. If you experience problems with the technology during your class, press the Classroom Technology Hotline button on the phone next to the podium (or dial extension 2-5900) to speak with a support specialist.
PC classrooms are hybrid computer labs/classrooms that provide the same teaching experience as Technology Equipped Classrooms with the addition of individual computers for each student.
When you print from a lab or classroom computer at DePaul, you will see multiple Intelliprint printer options.
