Lessons in Higher Education: Five Pedagogical Practices that Promote Active Learning for Faculty and Students
Cook-Sather, Alison
Journal of Faculty Development, v25 n3 p33-39 Sep 2011
Active learning by faculty members complements and promotes active learning for students. Through The Andrew W. Mellon Teaching and Learning Institute at Bryn Mawr College, faculty members actively engage with one another and with undergraduate students positioned as pedagogical consultants to explore and to practice a wide range of pedagogies. In this discussion, I draw on research literature and faculty reflections to describe five practices that, taken together, hold particular promise for involving both faculty and students more actively in their learning.
