UCD CS Active Learning Laboratory

UCD CS’s ability to provide the highest level of Computer Science instruction is boosted by a new state of the art facility for teaching and learning, the Active Learning Laboratory.

The Active Learning Laboratory is a pilot project to foster an interactive, student centered learning experience. With our students already using the new facility, the feedback to date has been very good and the lab is proving to be a very valuable addition to the school.

Through the use of technology and collaborative learning we hope to improve the students’ understanding of the subject matter and foster a greater sense of inclusion and participation among our class groupings.This format is based on SCALE-UP learning environment, which originated at North Carolina State University and has been extensively tested and researched by colleges in the US and around the world.
