A ‘Cheat Sheet’ for Active Learning

The Center for Teaching at Vanderbilt University recently released a helpful guide to active learning. The document lists 10 steps that instructors can follow to implement active learning in their classroom including: Creating a safe and open environment; setting a goal for the activity; choosing the right exercise; identifying preparation for the exercise; considering links to other class elements; planning how you will introduce the activity; planning the logistics; considering how you will judge success; just doing it; and iterating and expanding on the activity.
