Abstract Title: Promoting Sustained Radical Reforms: Enablers, Barriers and impacts of classroom design
Abstract: We investigated implementations of the radical reform of SCALE-UP through interviews with key informants representing 21 unique and successful implementations.  In this poster we report on structures and characteristics found to either enable or hinder the reform with special emphasis on the roll of the redesigned classroom space that is a foundation of the SCALE-UP approach. We provide specific recommendations for those interested in promoting this or similar radical reforms.
