Abstract Title: Argumentation during active learning strategies in a SCALE-UP environment
Abstract: In this study, we seek to explore students' discussions during active learning strategies of Peer Instruction and Tutorial-like activities in a SCALE-UP environment. Discussions were recorded in one of the tables of a student-centered learning room in a private Mexican university, and analyzed through a qualitative approach using Toulmin's argumentation pattern as framework of reference. We found that the round table functions as a learning community in the SCALE-UP environment, but the dynamics of the table is different while implementing each learning strategy. During Tutorial-like activities, students center their discussions on each small team, while during Peer Instruction students center their discussion in the whole table. These findings provide an insight into the kind of competencies that we mean to develop in our students by engaging them in active learning strategies in student centered learning environments.
