Description: This article offers a description of the activities involved in the The Student-Centered Activities for Large Enrollment Undergraduate Programs (SCALE-UP) Project and describes some of the successes the program has seen in classrooms over the last three years. SCALE-UP offers instructors of large introductory science classes an economical and effective alternative to the lecture/laboratory format. This program combines lecture and laboratory in an approach that uses technology and minimal lecturing to create a highly collaborative, technology-rich, hands-on, interactive learning environment. In addition to developing classroom designs and management techniques, the project involves the development, evaluation, and dissemination of curricular materials for introductory physics that support this type of learning.
