Find guidance on approaches to teaching to enhance active learning and student engagement.

Teaching methods can take a number of different forms and can range from didactic approaches to active learning methods. One of the most important tasks for academics while designing their teaching strategy is to determine what content needs to be delivered in what way and how these different teaching methods can be effectively combined to enhance students’ learning experiences.

With a focus on active learning techniques, the pages below will provide you with a range of approaches to teaching which encourage engagement and inclusivity. Active learning is a learner-centred approach to teaching which encourages students to participate in group and individual activities in order to apply knowledge through experience, engage in higher order thinking and produce evidence of their learning.

You can find out more about active learning by visiting the Active Learning Network site.
