Active Learning“We might think of active learning as an approachto instruction in which students engage thematerial they study throughreading, writing, talking, listening, and reflecting.Active learning stands in contrast to "standard"modes of instruction in which teachers do most ofthe talking and students are passive.” What Is Active Learning?, U of Minn, Center for Teaching & Learning
  2. 2. Quality MattersLearner Interaction and Engagement5.2 Learning activities provide opportunities for interaction that support active learning.Types of interaction include student-instructor, student-content, student-student.
