Guiding Principles

Guiding Principles of Classroom Scheduling 


Focus efforts on classroom scheduling for the benefit of students’ access. 

  • Spread class schedules throughout the day/week to reduce time conflicts for students.
  • Adhere to standard meeting patterns.

Monitor classroom seat and lab space utilization.

  • Keep classroom seat utilization above 65%.
  • Maintain lab space utilization above 75%.
  • View departmental utilization percentages by course and in the aggregate at AppAnalytics, analytics.appstate.edu/space_management.

Adhere to seat capacity limits. 

  • Determined by App State’s Environmental Health, Safety and Emergency Management Team, seat capacities must be honored.

Reserve Event Space in Series25 for classroom availability for students outside of regular class time.

  • Reserve classrooms for maker spaces, study time for lab practical exams, practice sessions, rehearsals, assignment preparation, and co-curricular involvement.
  • Use the Event Reservation portion of 25Live and select the Event Type, Academic Support.

Submit change requests before making any alterations to classroom spaces or partitions. 

Follow the Schedule Build Calendar and the due dates.

 

Use the Classroom Change Request Form after TAS, Technology Assisted Scheduling, has been performed.
