What is WisCEL:

The Wisconsin Collaboratory for Enhanced Learning (WisCEL) is an innovative approach to learning that combines deliberate choices of physical environment including multi-use spaces, technology that supports both peer-collaboration and self-paced learning, and software which provides immediate feedback to students on assignments and exams and allows increased instructor time with students.

In part, the goals of WisCEL include:

  • Maximizing learner time on task.
  • Providing immediate learning progress feedback and building fundamental competencies through the use of technology.
  • Supporting peer-collaborative learning.
  • Reducing the achievement gap.
  • Increasing access and reducing schedule conflicts.
  • Building life-long learner skills and confidence vs. teacher-centered dependency
  • Supporting "inverted paradigm" instruction (flipped classroom)
  • Supporting assessment based on competency standards rather than relative comparison to other cohort peers. (Personalized learning vs. "one size fits all" learning)

WisCEL is currently offering teaching spaces for Math, Physics, and Engineering, but is looking to expand to other departments in the near future.
