Additional Detail

Our knowledge of how students learn has grown significantly over the last few decades. In keeping with this trend, the quality and sheer amount of research on instructional strategies has also grown. Active learning has emerged as an instructional method that can improve learning outcomes for all students, including students from marginalized backgrounds and populations. Active learning is not only something that students do, but also something that teachers can promote through their selection of learning activities.
