Active Learning For The College Classroom

The past decade has seen an explosion of interest among college faculty in the teaching methods variously grouped under the terms ‘active learning’ and ‘cooperative learning’. However, even with this interest, there remains much misunderstanding of and mistrust of the pedagogical “movement” behind the words. The majority of all college faculty still teach their classes in the traditional lecture mode. Some of the criticism and hesitation seems to originate in the idea that techniques of active and cooperative learning are genuine alternatives to, rather than enhancements of, professors’ lectures. We provide below a survey of a wide variety of active learning techniques which can be used to supplement rather than replace lectures. We are not advocating complete abandonment of lecturing, as both of us still lecture about half of the class period. The lecture is a very efficient way to present information but use of the lecture as the only mode of instruction presents problems for both the instructor and the students. There is a large amount of research attesting to the benefits of active learning.

“Active Learning” is, in short, anything
