Active Learning Classrooms

The university wants to stimulate active participation and cooperation, so that students can generate, exchange and integrate knowledge. The learning environment can be optimized by mixing on-campus and online educational activities. These are called Active Learning Classrooms (ALCs).

Various faculties pay specific attention to active learning in their educational vision. This is in line with the Strategic Plan 2021-2026 of the University of Groningen.

Flexible educational spaces

To enable the desired strategic innovation, the university has invested in flexible educational spaces in recent years through the Temporary Extra Educational Spaces (TEO) project. These learning spaces are referred to as Active Learning Classrooms (ALCs) and are suitable for on-site, hybrid and active learning activities. Due to the increasing number of students, the demand from faculties for these classrooms is increasing, as well as for the renovation of existing spaces.

The experiences and expectations of teachers also require innovation. Being able to properly apply active learning methods requires good (IT) facilities. The Active Learning Classrooms are therefore optimally set up for these purposes.

More information

The Temporary Extra Educational Spaces (TEO) project was launched in 2020. The project will last four years and runs until December 2023.

Active Learning Classrooms can be found in various buildings of the UG. Find out where.
