Scaling Active Learning

The old ideas of “teaching by pouring in” or “learning by passive absorption” (John Dewey – “Democracy and Education”) are being replaced with a learn by doing approach, or active learning.

In this video, we meet with Dr. Elizabeth Charles and her team at Dawson College (Westmount, Canada) who researched the active learning pedagogy and are currently testing ways of scaling it.
