Promoting Active Learning through "Pub Quizzes"--A Case Study at the University of Kent
Klappa, Peter
Bioscience Education, v14 Article c2 Dec 2009
Several teaching approaches with a focus on active learning have been developed in the past, with the aim to encourage the learner to take responsibility for their own learning progress. Most of these approaches augment the learning of material after it was introduced in conventional lectures. The aim of this project was to develop a teaching method that was suitable for gaining introductory factual knowledge without the need for conventional teaching sessions. A "pub quiz" style teaching approach was developed, which should encourage students to actively engage with a topic in advance of a teaching session and enable students to improve their transferable skills, e.g. learn effective time management and leadership skills.
