Student Centered Active Learning Environment for Undergraduate Programs


SCALE-UP Model
  • Promotes active learning in a redesigned classroom of 50-70 students or more.
  • Successfully implemented at approximately 100 institutions across the United States.
  • Provides a highly collaborative, hands-on, computer-rich, interactive learning environment for large-enrollment courses.
  • Class time is spent primarily on hands-on activities, simulations, or interesting questions, problems and/or hypothesis-driven labs where students have to write detailed reports.

1Evaluations and data indicate the following:
  • Improved problem solving
