Meaningful rather than 'rote', 'deep' rather than 'surface' learning. Engaging with the learning task at a cognitive and affective level.
usually contrasted with a straight lecture method, active learning involves students in course material through carefully constructed activities which range from "buzz groups," in which pairs of students discuss material during a calculated pause in a lecture, to role-playing, case studies, group projects, and seminars.
The process of learning new knowledge, skills and behaviors through taking specific actions or performing specific tasks.
Teaching method that uses hands-on activities and learning by doing such as putting on a play or conducting a science experiment; sitting at a desk filling out worksheets is the opposite of active learning.
The process in which an individual selects what is meaningful within an array of stimuli.
systematic process of reflection on action, for the purpose of developing skills and competencies; examples include action-learning/action-research, Quality Circles, debriefing and task self-assessment; link-theme between mental dimension and physical dimension
is an approach to language learning that encourages studentsâ€™ sustained engagement with the target language, using it to complete tasks or other goal-oriented, meaningful activities, with some level of self-direction. This may be contrasted with, say, passively listening to a teacherâ€™s explanation or reacting to a teacherâ€™s command to supply a tense in a gap-fill exercise.
Learning which emphasizes learners¡¦ active involvement. Teachers are seen as the facilitators of the process. Good teaching, as in OBTL, requires students be active in ways appropriate to achieving the ILOs.
A learning principle that says participants learn more when they are actively involved in the process. Remember the saying “we learn more by doing”.
This term is used to describe project-based learning in which active student participation in the learning process is promoted; the teacher acts as a facilitator of the student learning experience rather than a one-way provider of information.
means that the students spend time "in the field"--in a workplace or community setting--exploring and investigating. Learning is active if it requires multiple methods of research, media , and sources, and if it results in a product with usefulness outside of a school setting.
Any situation in which students move around and do things, rather than sitting at their desks, reading, filling out worksheets, or listening to a teacher.
In traditional or pedagogical education, material to be learned is often transmitted to students by teachers. That is, learning is passive. In active learning, students are much more actively engaged in their own learning while educators take a more guiding role. This approach is thought to promote processing of skills/knowledge to a much deeper level than passive learning. Related terms/concepts include: experiential learning, hands on learning.
Learning driven primary by the learner, with the instructor acting as a facilitator (Knight and Nestor, 2000).
A process of learning new ideas, skills and attitudes through what we do at work or in other behavioral situations. It is about learning from doing, performing, and taking action. The action can be either mental (e.g. reflection) or physical (e.g. case study). It uses such devices as games, simulations, introspection, role playing, etc.
in which students solve problems, answer questions, formulate questions of their own, discuss, explain, debate, or brainstorm during class, as opposed to the more conventional instructor-centered methods
Any learning experience that get students to move around and do things£®It is the opposite of passive learning, wherein learning is Teacher-Centred£®Closely connected to Discovery Learning Experiential Learning and Performance Assessment
The learner makes deliberate choices and actions about what and how they acquire knowledge.
Students take an active role in their learning rather than learn passively through teacher-directed instruction. Active learning: inspires the senses is sometimes noisy, yet productive encourages learners to experiment and explore fosters critical thinking and inquiry is supportive, safe and encourages risk-taking promotes social interaction and collaboration encourages individual strengths encourages and fosters learning through different mediums may be untidy due to the nature of the work in progress encourages learners to take responsibility for their learning is shaped to promote collaboration provides learning opportunities carefully designed to meet learner expectations and standards
A process whereby learners are actively engaged in the learning process, rather than "passively" absorbing lectures. Active learning involves reading, writing, discussion, and engagement in solving problems, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Active learning often involves cooperative learning.
Active learning, as the name suggests, is a type of instruction which some teachers employ to involve pupils during the learning process. Associated with the term "learning by doing", "active learning" is often contrasted with less active forms of instruction (e.g. lecture -- Bonwell and Eison, 1991).
