Active learning involves students participating in the process of learning. Instead of putting students in a lecture hall or a reading room where they receive information verbally and visually, students are presented with opportunities and activities that engage them in receiving the information and participating in the process via reflection, doing activities related to learning, as well as creating artifacts that flow back into the knowledge base.

There are lots of possibilities for incorporating active learning activities in your face-to-face or online course. Learning more about it with this week’s teaching tip.
