3b: Using the Active Learning Cycle
In this module, faculty learn how to effectively plan and facilitate active learning in a large class. The module teaches faculty to use an active learning cycle to pique student interest, build foundational knowledge, and then require students to apply new concepts. In addition, the module includes techniques for using formative assessment and leveraging technology to inform and improve learning.
To satisfy the module requirements, faculty must apply at least one technique, such as using cues to keep students on task, designing lessons according to an active learning cycle, or closing with an activity to hold students accountable.
This module is one of six modules under ACUE’s unit on Using Active Learning Techniques.
