Abstract:

"A growing body of research today points to active learning strategies - in which students talk and listen, read, write, and reflect as they become directly involved in the instructional process - as a way to better engage students, cultivate critical thinking, and improve the overall quality of teaching and learning." "This book offers a practical guide to successful strategies for active learning. Presenting a wide range of teaching tools - including problem-solving exercises, cooperative student projects, informal group work, simulations, case studies, role playing, and similar activities that ask students to apply what they are learning - Promoting Active Learning draws on the classroom experiences and tips of teachers from a variety of disciplines."--Jacket.
