Stanford has four flexible, special-capability classrooms on campus, offering advanced resources for class collaboration and presentation. VPTL staff provide facilitated access and support in these rooms and consulting on pedagogy and strategies for using academic technologies. Due to high demand, and to support innovation in teaching, these spaces are reserved in advance of the academic year.
