SCALE-UP Gets Personal: Enriching the Remote Student Experience - Sponsored furniture provided by Herman Miller, Bronze Partner

Wednesday, February 11 | 10:30AM–11:15AM | California A, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
Many institutions are experimenting with a classroom model called SCALE-UP, leveraging technology to encourage teachers to roam and students to collaborate. The University of Florida is taking the model a step further, modifying it to give remote students a way to collaborate with their peers in the classroom. In connection with the Herman Miller Learning Studio Research Program, UF is exploring the impact of this learning design on students. This session will guide attendees through the process of creating their own SCALE-UP or technology-enhanced classroom on campus that fosters more engaging experiences for local and remote students.

OUTCOMES: Explore the types of spaces and technologies that foster learning * Learn from student and instructor experiences regarding technology's impact on spaces for learning * Understand the prototyping process for designing a classroom that enhances student engagement
