What is active learning? Broadly speaking, active learning strategies are activities that engage students in the learning process. Group work, peer review and interactive quizzes are some examples. These strategies are key because they can help increase student performance. In fact, students in courses that use active learning are 1.5 times less likely to fail than their peers who are not engaged in active learning.
