What is the Active Learning Network?

The Active Learning Network is a group of people from around the world who share an interest in active approaches to learning.

This site is designed to be a collaborative platform to showcase active learning projects, research and discussion taking place nationally and internationally. If you have a project that you would like us to showcase, please let us know!

The group was initiated by Wendy Garnham (@W_Garnham), a Teaching Fellow in Psychology and Tab Betts (@TabbanBetts) from Technology Enhanced Learning at University of Sussex. All opinions stated are our own.

How do we define Active Learning?

In active learning, rather than the teacher ‘transmitting’ knowledge through lectures or reading, learners engage in a series of activities which require them to produce observable evidence of their learning. Where possible, these individual, pair and group tasks should aim to develop higher order thinking skills, emotional connection with content and tactile or physical engagement with the environment.”

– Tab Betts, Learning Technologist, University of Sussex

Active learning is a process whereby students engage in activities, such as reading, writing, discussion, or problem solving that promote analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of class content. Cooperative learning, problem-based learning, and the use of case methods and simulations are some approaches that promote active learning.”
