At Dawson College, faculty have been increasingly turning to Active Learning as an evidence-based instructional approach. To support this growth, the college has invested resources in developing Active Learning classrooms and in the development of pedagogical resources and capacity through a number of faculty and researcher-lead initiatives – including the development of the Dawson Active Learning Community (DALC) and SALTISE.
