    This paper presents preliminary results from a research project at the
    University of Groningen where recently various Active Learning Classrooms
    (ALC) were created. It answers the research question “How do university
    teachers experience teaching in an Active Learning Classroom?”. In total, 14
    teachers participated in a survey which was conducted before and after their
    courses in an ALC. Results show that, in line with their expectations, teachers
    experienced their courses in ALC to be more active. It seems that the ALC
    indeed stimulated teachers to implement more active learning activities in their
    course, although teachers indicate they have not yet fully utilized the ALC.
    Therefore, we conclude it would be worthwhile to provide continuous didactic
    and technological support to teachers when adopting ALC in universities.
