Abstract

In Turkey, funding for higher education institutions has increased drastically in the last ten years. This has caused a profound increase in the number of new universities and undergraduates. As a result, there has been a focus on the design and construction of new buildings on the campuses, but not in the design of the classrooms. This oversight has resulted in omission of contemporary active learning environments such as Student-Centered Active Learning Environment with Upside-down Pedagogies (SCALE-UP).
