Active Learning

Active learning generally refers to any instructional method that engages students in the learning process beyond listening and passive note-taking. Active learning approaches promote skill development and higher-order thinking through activities that might include reading, writing, and/or discussion. Metacognition — thinking about one’s thinking — can also be an important element, helping students connect course activities to their learning (Brame, 2016).

These resources are meant to aid in the identification, practice, and implementation of research-based active learning approaches. They can be used in both online and face-to-face learning environments. This guide should help you to create and recognize opportunities to integrate active learning activities that facilitate desired student learning outcomes into your course in both planned and dynamic ways.
