SCALE-UP is an active learning approach combining peer teaching, flipped and enquiry-based methods and professional skills development through group activity. The approach has been linked with improving conceptual understanding, problem-solving and engagement, decreasing attainment gaps and reducing failure rates. NTU now has 12 dedicated SCALE-UP classrooms across City and Clifton campuses which incorporate bespoke classroom design and specialised equipment. Timetabling requests for 2017-18 should be submitted through Key Academic Contacts by 31 March 2017. For support with any SCALE-UP related matters, from timetabling to adapting curriculum, contact:
