Active Learning

Active Learning refers to a method of learning where active student participation is encouraged through project-based exercises. One unique characteristic of active learning is that the teacher acts as a facilitator of the education process rather than as a unilateral source of information. Examples of active learning include in-class debates and discussion circles on reading assignments.
