Encouraging active learning

Encouraging active learning

“It is not enough just to do, and neither is it enough just to think. Nor is it enough simply to do and think. Learning from experience must involve linking the doing and the thinking” Gibbs (1988)

This interactive seminar / workshop explores with participants the meaning of the concept of active learning and discusses a range of ways in which it may be built into lectures, seminars, practicals, fieldwork and other teaching contexts. Emphasis is placed on inquiry-based learning examples.
