Business students at the University of Central Florida agitate for alternatives to a model that heavily shifts their learning time to outside the classroom. Students in the University of Central Florida’s College of Business this week have gotten more than 1,800 signatures on a petition criticizing the college’s recent shift to a blended and active learning classroom model that some students describe as onerous and not conducive to learning. The business college, meanwhile, is standing behind its changes, arguing they’re sound and well intentioned from a pedagogical perspective, and more well liked by students than the petition suggests.
