We have developed the New Studio format of instruction for improved conceptual learning while retaining problem-solving skill development in large, first-year physics courses. This format retains the large lecture, but combines traditional recitation and laboratory instruction. The New Studio format integrates simplified laboratories with assigned homework problems to integrate conceptual and problem-solving skills. The studio format combines 2 hours of lecture with 4 hours of studio each week. The studio is taught for 2 hours twice per week, and consists of up to 40 students working in groups of four at tables equipped with modern instructional technology and apparatus. The group setting allows for peer instruction and development of group skills. The combination of traditional lecture with the studio format enables a research-oriented physics department with a large service teaching load to implement research-based pedagogy. Student gains on the Force Concept Inventory were similar to other courses taught by interactive engagement methods.
