Puzzling a classroom requires scheduling 43 hours of class time for one room, thereby reserving the room for those scheduled classes during the schedule build process for the semester.
Fall 2013: DEADLINE for getting Puzzling in for approval is March 1st (please send puzzle to firstname.lastname@example.org). Once you receive confirmation that it is approved, you can enter the room into the Facility ID section in PSoft. Do NOT enter any puzzled rooms in before it is approved by Academic Scheduling.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
- Let Academic Scheduling (email@example.com) know as soon as you choose a room to schedule.
Also, let us know if you have decided not to puzzle a requested room - We would like you not to go through wasted effort if more than one person is trying to schedule the same room!
- Room Chart
Please use a room chart to put in the 43 hrs of classes, then scan and send to Academic Scheduling (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Room Chart for Puzzling - Please use new worksheet on same document for each room puzzled.
- Puzzled rooms must adequately meet, but not exceed, capacity
(i.e. Classes of 25 or 61, cannot meet in a 60 capacity room)
Do not go under 70% of room capacity and try to stay as close to 100% as possible.
NEVER go over 100% of room capacity.
- Classroom Capacity and Room Features Information
Select Building on left bar, then select Room
- Schedule professors with back-to-back classes into the same room
Sorting a query by professors is helpful for this process.
- Approved Course Meeting Times
Unless you have approval from Academic Scheduling, you must use approved class meeting times for all classes.
Please keep in mind, due to University Hour on Tuesdays & Thursday, TR and MW morning meeting patterns are different.
