Abstract

Student-Centred Active Learning Environment with Upside-down Pedagogies (SCALE-UP) is a set of collaborative learning techniques that are shown to reduce the continuation and awarding gaps between students of Black, Asian and other Minority Ethnicities (BAME) and White students when SCALE-UP is implemented throughout every module in an undergraduate course. The aim of this project was to evaluate the impact of SCALE-UP on a level-four Psychology module consisting of 140 students to inform considerations of wider implementation. Although the grades and gaps on this single module did not differ significantly from other modules, written feedback from students indicated that students appreciated the authenticity of interactions afforded by SCALE-UP. Staff recognised the growing confidence of their students when expressing their views in class, peer interactions and group activities. These are indicators of the potential benefits that large-scale implementation of SCALE-UP could contribute to closing or removing continuation and awarding gaps.
