Odegaard Library and UW Information Technology’s collaborative research team studied the experiences of instructors and students in the Odegaard Library Active Learning Classrooms for two years, including Nyan-Ping Bi's First-Year Chinese for Non-Heritage Learners course. Year 1 focused on the effects the ALC had on teaching and learning; read the full report here.

In year 2 of their research, they created four Active Learning Classroom profiles; read about their methods here.The profiles focussed on the following:

  • a “day in the life” of the ALC course
  • the course’s pedagogical goals and challenges
  • student experiences in the course
  • overall best practices that can be applied to active learning and traditional classrooms alike.

For further information, please visit UW Library's research guide on the project.  The profile for Bi's CHIN 102 course can also be found here.
