We are partnering with SAS Computing, the Provost’s Classrooms Committee, and the Center for Teaching and Learning to host a video conference with Dr. Robert Beichner about designing active learning spaces and methods in higher education. Dr. Beichner has designed the SCALE-UP model of learning, which focuses on collaborative student learning and instruction. The discussion will cover pedagogy, as well as some of the challenges of organizing the facilities, technology, and support structure to facilitate this type of integrated learning environment. This model of education has been used in many settings including his Biology course at the University of Minnesota:
The videoconference will take place this Friday, March 2 from 11 am to noon in the McNeil Building, Room 286-7. Register to attend the videoconference here.
