Active learning in higher education

Actively involve students in the learning process by having them participate and do.

 

Research has demonstrated that active teaching is superior to lectures in terms of developing thinking and writing skills. Active learning in a higher education setting can take many forms, from enhancing a traditional lecture to supporting a completely hands-on learning environment.
