SCAILAB - Student Computer Aided Instruction Lab


Monday - Thursday 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Friday 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.


SCAILAB the Student Computer-Aided Instruction Lab of the Tutorium in Intensive English (TIE) at the University of Illinois at Chicago, is located on the first floor of Addams Hall on the east side of the UIC campus. We provide students with a public PC lab and provide instructors and TIE with two classrooms where they can explore, experiment with, and implement all manner of electronic instruction.

The primary role of SCAILAB and its staff is to advise and aid instructors in the discovery of a mode of electronic instruction best suited to their personal pedagogical profile. To that end, we provide individualized consulting with regards to instructors' particular course purposes and tech support during classroom interaction. While we recognize computer technology to be an integral part of contemporary higher education, we also acknowledge the practical and critical complexity of the challenge it poses to instructors as well as the past and present notions of instruction. Thus our consultants welcome all questions, queries, and doubts pertaining to the use of the many applications provided by SCAILAB and their accomodations to the scope of the instructor's objectives.

We wish however to remind the friends of SCAILAB that our lab is primarily an instructional facility and that all questions pertaining strictly to the technological issues, and especially the Network Services Kit and modem problems are to be addressed to the Academic Computing and Communications Center.
