Active Learning is the process of students engaging in practices other than passively listening to lectures in order to increase their academic intake. Though the 50-minute lecture is the dominant method for instruction, it is not necessarily the most effective. Part of the issue with this method of teaching is that it does not account for how students actually learn material (Barr & Tagg, 1995). Different activities such as reading, group activities, and discussions create useful enhancements to the tradition lecture (Faust & Paulson, 1998). The main objective of Active Learning is to promote analysis and evaluation of classroom and content, and to create an environment where students are more engaged in the material presented.
