Reserving a Computer Lab
In order reserve a computer lab, first find which labs are available at http://clm.ucdavis.edu/calendars/2011/. Click on any particular lab you have in mind listed across the very top of the screen, then select a month a bit further down and scroll to the week in question.
Once you've found an empty time slot in a given lab, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (530)752-8549. Requests for reservations can be submitted up to one year or four academic quarters (two summer sessions would count as one academic quarter) in advance, whichever is more. Please reserve the classroom at least two weeks prior to the start of the class.
You can also simply call "4-LABS," or 754-5227, and request classroom hours and info.
Teaching in a General Assignment Classroom without Computers
If you want to teach with technology (say, a laptop) in a traditional classroom without computers, check this site to determine the room's media capabilities. Just click on "Room Lookup" in the left-hand menu, then select your classroom from a pull-down list.
I have also put together some basic instructions on laptop hookup to a clasroom Smartpanel, as well as info on laptop projection and wireless access.
