Knowledge of Active Learning

What is Active Learning? Compared to a lecture format, active learning (AL) is defined as any instructional method that engages learners in the learning process. In short, AL requires learners to participate in meaningful learning activities, think about and analyze what they are doing and learning. Examples of AL methods include: think-pair share, pause procedure during a lecture, or case-based discussions. 

For explanations of the official AL terms, please see Teaching Practice Terminology Tip Sheet for details.
