Active learning strategies promote increased student participation and greater awareness of the learning process compared to traditional teaching methodologies which rely on the students’ passive absorption of course materials. A student-centered approach, active learning engages students in problem-solving, collaborative, and cooperative tasks in order to practice and demonstrate complex thinking skills like analysis and evaluation. These resources provide a quick overview of active learning and how it promotes inclusive teaching, as well as examples of strategies and activities to try in your own classroom.
