SCALE-UP Pilot Project

OCM is building a SCALE-UP classroom pilot project for use by faculty
members seeking an activity-based instructional model and a new
classroom design.

"SCALE-UP" (Student-Centered Activities for Large Enrollment
Undergraduate Programs) classrooms feature large round tables, multiple
white boards, a centered teaching station, multiple projection/viewing
surfaces and laptop based technology.

Various institutions are experimenting with this new classroom design
that promotes greater student interactivity. The OCM pilot SCALE-UP
room is a demonstration classroom designed to allow faculty and
students to experience and test the concept.

The 45-student demonstration SCALE-UP general purpose classroom on the
East Bank campus will be available for use in Fall semester, 2007.

If you are interested in learning more about SCALE-UP classrooms or in
teaching in the pilot classroom next Fall, please contact OCM Jeremy
Todd at 625-5379 or Steve Fitzgerald at 626-8677.
