The following is a summary of the SCALE-UP ideas and guidance for labs that I found in the article.
Goal for scale up to design and conduct experiments and analyze and interpret data
Tangibles – from short pieces to small experiments – set a problem for them to solve
Learning when enacting, simulating or doing the real thing is involved 90% may be remembered after 2 weeks.
Always “why are we doing this?” or “what am I supposed to learn from this?”
More extensive labs with formal reports. Students decide what equipment is needed from a selection provided.
Team roles (10% of grade)
Hypothesis generation, student design of data collection, uncertanity considerations, building over semester,full, detailed reports by the end.
