Three Cornell University faculty members in the College of Arts and Sciences shared their experiences of transforming their classrooms from traditional lectures to active learning spaces at an Oct. 25, 2016 workshop.

Four years ago, the College of Arts and Sciences launched the Active Learning Initiative (ALI) pilot project in three departments, in response to calls from government organizations and professional societies to improve college-level teaching in science and mathematics. In active learning classrooms, students enjoy more hands-on activities and more frequent student-student and student-instructor interactions through methods such as small discussion groups, partner sharing and the use of technology like iclickers and smartphone apps to enhance learning. Students gain the information from the traditional lecture through videos, readings, online exercises and quizzes they do in advance of class.
