Abstract

Active learning (AL) is a teaching pedagogy that seeks to improve student engagement and performance in class. Currently, Worcester Polytechnic Institute has no classrooms designed for this style of teaching. We conducted interviews with WPI faculty and administration, along with other schools with successful AL initiatives, to investigate the feasibility of active learning classrooms. Ultimately, we developed specific recommendations for implementing AL spaces at WPI, along with strategies that would help to optimize their performance.
