SAIL Classrooms at Penn

SAIL (Structured, Active, In-Class Learning) classrooms are designed to support structured, in-class activities in which students work to solve problems, interpret data or evidence, or otherwise engage in real practices in the discipline. SAIL classrooms typically have students seated at tables, working in groups, with instructors circulating and guiding the process.

For more information about the SAIL initiative and how you can integrate active learning strategies into your course, see the information provided by Penn's Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) or contact CTL at .
