Enhancing Academic Achievement by Identifying and Minimizing the Impediments To Active Learning

Author: ROBERT A. PETERS
Published in PAQ, Vol. 35 No. 4

Although active learning strategies are the most effective means for promoting deep learning and understanding, implementation is impeded by student and faculty preferences for stimulus-response learning. The paper therefore identifies the bases for the preferences and strategies for counteracting them. The implementation of these strategies and active learning requires a greater amount of time to address course materials than is the case for stimulus-response learning. The paper therefore discusses several approaches for de-cluttering courses and MPA curriculum along with interweaving the remaining elements in a manner that fosters understanding and lifelong learning.
