  • Active Learning Karl Schnapp Lash Center for Teaching and Learning
  • Agenda
    • What is “active learning”?
    • Why use active learning?
    • A model of active learning
    • Promoting active learning
    • Techniques of active learning
        • Individual
        • Cooperative
  • What is Active Learning? Take a minute to write an answer to these questions: How would you define “active learning”? What characterizes active learning and makes different from “inactive learning”?
  • What is Active Learning?
    • Active learning is anything that students do in the classroom to learn other than just listening to a lecture
    • Active learning involves students in doing things and thinking about what they are doing
  • Why Use Active Learning?
    • Research shows that…
    • students prefer AL over lecture alone
    • students master content at levels comparable to lecturing
    • students master thinking and writing skills at levels higher than lecturing
    • student learning styles are better served by active learning vs. lecturing
  • How much is retained ? (Work with a partner to determine which percentages match these teaching practices?)
    • Discussion = ?
    • Lecturing = ?
    • Teaching others = ?
    • Reading = ?
    • Practice Doing = ?
    • Audio-Visual = ?
    • Demonstrations = ?
    5% 10% 20% 30% 50% 75% 90%
  • Three-Part Model of Active Learning Active Learning Passive Learning Receiving Information and Ideas Experience Reflective Dialogue w/ Others Doing Observing w/ Self Reflecting
  • Dee Fink’s Model of AL
  • Promoting Active Learning
    • Find new ways to introduce students to information and ideas
      • Some examples:
        • Assign a reading, give a quiz, set up an in-class activity to use info and ideas
        • Provide links to web sites that have images and texts relevant to class
        • Create projects that get students to collect their own data or information
    • Create rich learning experiences
      • especially those that involve several kinds of “significant” learning ( Foundational Knowledge , Application, Integration, Human Dimension, Caring, and Learning How to Learn)
      • Fink’s examples: a simulated engineering project, starting and running a real business
    Promoting Active Learning
  • Promoting Active Learning
    • Assign in-depth reflective writing on their learning using these questions:
      • What am I learning?
      • What value does this have for me?
      • How did I learn it best?
      • What else do I need to learn?
  • Active Learning Techniques
    • How have you tried to use active learning techniques for individual students?
  • Active Learning Techniques
    • For Individual Students
    • CATS (Minute Paper, Muddiest Point, Finger Signals, Flash Cards, PRS)
    • Q&A (Student Summarizing Student Answer, Quiz/Test Questions, Fish Bowl)
    • Critical Thinking Motivators (Intuition Quiz, Paradoxes/Puzzles)
  • Active Learning Techniques
    • How have you tried to use active learning techniques for pairs and groups of students?
  • Active Learning Techniques
    • For Pairs and Groups of Students
    • Discussions/Debates/Presentations
    • Note Comparing/Sharing
    • Concept Mapping/Brainstorming
    • Jigsaw Group Projects
    • Role Playing
