Teaching and Learning Commons

Seattle Central's Teaching and Learning Commons (TLC) provides technical and instructional support to faculty and staff.  The TLC provides access to current and emerging technologies and the innovative hands-on technology training, skills, and pedagogical support needed for use of these technologies. We encourage you to explore options, the use of multiple delivery methods, and to share your ideas and successes with others.

The TLC offers staff and faculty assistance with applications such as O365, Canvas, Adobe Acrobat, Google, Panopto, Citrix, scanning, Zoom, ctcLink class rosters, and more. Explore multiple or alternative delivery methods.

Laptops and other instructional equipment such as webcams, digital photo and video cameras, voice recorders, and others can also be checked out.

Conference Room (2101Q) that can be reserved through 25Live! A Meeting Owl is available and laptops can be projected to a big screen monitor.

TLC staff offer support and consultation through drop-ins and by appointment.
