As one of its initiatives to address national shortfalls in science, technology, and math education, the Virginia Tech College of Science opened a new classroom in fall 2010 that enables collaborative and interactive learning for a lecture-style class.
The classroom, called Student-Centered Active Learning Environment for Undergraduate Programs (SCALE-UP), was designed by Robert Beichner, an American Council on Education Fellow at Virginia Tech and a visiting professor in the Department of Physics.
