Active Learning: The Almost Silver Bullet


Despite its clear benefits, Active Learning (AL) has gone widely unused in favor of traditional teaching models, due to AL's higher costs. With the increased prevalence of software based teaching aids, many of these barriers have been removed and new Active Learning strategies can be more easily implemented. We show that AL can be utilized in the classroom to improve work efficiency, better use TAs, and achieve positive gains in student performance and understanding using integrated lab work.
