About the Teacher Preparation Lab

The TDRL Teacher Preparation Lab includes equipment designed for the preparation of physical and digital instructional materials.


SmartBoard Lab
The TDRL SmartBoard Lab is a place for students to learn about SmartBoard technology in the classroom and provides them an opportunity to experiment with and create their own interaction classroom activities. UNLV faculty may reserve the lab for class demonstrations or workshops.


Design Computer Stations
Priority use is given to the computers in the Teacher Preparation Lab for poster or digital scholarship design work. Students, faculty, and staff can consult with TDRL staff on creating posters for print on the large format printer or for digital display.


Computerized Die-Cut Machine
A Silhouette Cameo is available for library users to create customized paper cut outs. This technology provides library users with more flexibility in creating designs for bulletin boards, classroom displays, posters, and more.



Large Format Printing
Large format color printing is available on photo quality poster paper. Posters are restricted to 44 inches wide in one direction. Please allow at least 2 business days for print processing.

To submit a poster to print or for more information, please contact Katherine Keller (702-895-2187).
