About this module

How do you give students time to process complex ideas in a face to face environment without slowing the pace of the lesson? How can you make the learning experience engaging when there is so much content to get through? In this module, you will explore strategies to incorporate active learning into your teaching, while ensuring that informed pedagogy is driving the activity design process. You will analyse an active learning task, have an opportunity to create your own activity and explore ideas and techniques to bring the teaching and learning experience to life.
