Teaching Theaters

The University's three teaching theaters, Alkek 250, Centennial Hall 157, and the LBJ Student Center 4-16.1, represent the intersection of integrated media and large classrooms. By using a diverse array of media, the Teaching Theaters provide a creative teaching and learning environment. Staff provides consultation and assistance with the use of media in a large classroom setting.
