Most of Pitt’s general-purpose classrooms are equipped with a large monitor or projector to display instructors’ laptop screens and are paired with sound amplification for program audio from the laptop. In addition, large lecture halls have voice amplification for instructors. Rooms scheduled and controlled by professional schools, academic departments, and regional campuses may vary from this standard. For consultation on installed room technologies, instructors should check with their departmental technology support staff (for rooms controlled by schools/departments) or contact Classroom Services (for general purpose classrooms).
The Office of the Registrar manages nearly half of the classrooms on campus. If you are teaching in a Registrar-managed room, you can get details about capacity, classroom technology, and the physical layout of the room by going to the 25Live link at the Office of the Registrar website.
All other classrooms are controlled by individual schools and departments. If you have questions about who controls the room in which you are assigned to teach, contact the person responsible for classroom scheduling in your school or department.
As a general rule, it is valuable to visit your assigned classroom before classes start to become familiar with the layout and technology.
If you have additional questions about classroom technology, the Classroom Services team can advise individual instructors on what technology is in the room as well as on how to use technology to best meet their teaching goals.
