Active Learning

A learning process whereby students engage in activities, such as reading, writing, discussion, or problem solving, that promote analysis, synthesis and evaluation of class content.

The following approaches promote active learning:

  • cooperative learning
  • problem-based learning
  • use of case methods
  • simulations

The concept of active learning implies that students must engage cognitively, affectively, socially and even physically in order to learn.
