Scaling Up to Interactive Learning

There are no tedious lectures in 110 Cox Hall. Instead, students are working out problems on laptops and whiteboards, answering real-time quiz questions and helping each other learn.

NC State physicist Bob Beichner created this teaching model, known as SCALE-UP, to help students learn through activities. Research shows that such a model boosts student engagement. The idea has been adopted at more than 250 schools and universities around the world, including MIT, Clemson and Virginia Tech.

Two new SCALE-UP rooms opened in Cox Hall this year to replace the ones in the recently demolished Harrelson Hall. Scroll down to take a tour.
