This online, self-paced tutorial on active learning was developed by the University of Minnesota’s Center for Teaching and Learning. The purpose of this workshop is to offer guidance to instructors as they plan to implement active learning in their courses.
Instructors new to active learning will find a comprehensive list of strategies to choose from followed by recommendations to help get them started, while those currently using active learning can extend their practice by considering new contexts and applications. The tutorial contains a series of video scenes, each of which highlights challenges instructors often encounter when using active learning. A discussion with recommendations follows each video.
