Present generation students are primarily active learners with varied learning experiences and lecture courses may not suit all their learning needs. Effective learning involves providing students with a sense of progress and control over their own learning. This requires creating a situation where learners have a chance to try out or test their ideas. This testing is ideally accomplished by connecting students' ideas to concrete experience and that's where the "active" part of the learning comes in. Active learning involves providing opportunities for students to meaningfully talk and listen, write, read, and reflect on the content, ideas, issues, and concerns of an academic subject. This article briefly describes about some of the popular active learning strategies that have resulted in enhanced learning and are widely followed across the medical schools globally.
