Why Active Learning
If the goal of training at the university is to
teach students how to think creatively, and I think that’s the goal because any
job a Cornell student’s going to have is going to depend on their ability to
think creatively, then in class they must get practice in thinking creatively
there’s no way around it. So active learning challenges students to think
creatively about the material and to come away with a deeper understanding of
it and it works.
