Active learning

Overview

Active learning includes any way students engage with information that is not passively receiving it (i.e. lectures, reading of set texts or watching a video). Through organising, analysing, problem-solving, designing, discussing or many other active tasks, students are better able to remember and understand the information and make creative connections with it. 

This section includes articles on student engagement, interactive resources, icebreakers, quizzes and polling, active pedagogies such as flipped learning and some of the tools that can be used to promote active learning.
