Active Learning in the Classroom Questions – March 2022

1.How do you define ‘Active Learning’? What goals do you define for your students when using AL in the classroom?

2.What AL strategies or activities are used in your classroom? Where do your AL ideas come from? Novel approaches? Published educational approaches? Colleagues? Conferences? Repositories (online publisher platforms, case studies sites, etc.)?

3.Are you doing AL in small classrooms, large classrooms or both?

4.Do you flip your class? Is it partial or fully flipped classroom model?

5.Do you take advantage of AL resources on campus? https://www.uh.edu/fdis/resources/active-learning-classroom/alc-at-uh/

6.Do you find that AL more successfully develops higher-order thinking skills than expecting students to engage with course material on their own outside of the classroom?

7.How good is student engagement in AL? Do you quantify it?

8.How do you facilitate AL? Do students work individually, in pairs, in teams?

9.Are AL activities used as formative or summative assessments? How do you assess performance?

10.Do you obtain student feedback or satisfaction regarding AL?

11.Were you able to continue AL in the online context?

12.How do you make time for AL in classroom time?
