SCALE-UP (Student-Centred Active Learning Environment with Upside-down Pedagogies) is an innovative active, collaborative learning approach which is used extensively across NTU. SCALE-UP is associated with reduced progression gaps, reduced attainment gaps, improvements in attendance, and improvements in engagement, particularly for our Success for All groups.
What is SCALE-UP?
SCALE-UP is an active, collaborative mode of learning which offers an alternative to didactic and discursive pedagogies like lectures and seminars.
Active Collaborative Learning Project
Our Active Collaborative Learning Project investigated institutional barriers to the widespread adoption of active learning and evaluated the extent to which, active, collaborative learning can reduce disparities in non-continuation and attainment.
