Active Learning Classrooms Pilot Evaluation: Fall 2007 Findings and Recommendations

Thursday, October 25, 2007


This document provides a summary of the fall 2007 exploratory research on the Active Learning Classrooms constructed as a pilot project by the Office of Classroom Management (OCM). This pilot project involves a renovation of two general-purpose classrooms. These rooms were University of Minnesota design modifications modeled after North Carolina State University's Student-Centered Activities for Large Enrollment Undergraduate Programs (SCALE-UP) project and Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Technology Enabled Active Learning (TEAL) project.
The goal for these new learning spaces was to create a student-centered, integrated, and active learning space using flexible design and innovative construction techniques. These pilot learning spaces provide new and innovative classrooms, demonstrate new flexible classroom construction techniques, and allow faculty and students to experience and assess new classroom designs and pedagogy.
