Active Learning in Higher Education: Student Engagement and Deeper Learning Outcomes

This is the latest volume in the Learning in Higher Education series. Active Learning has at least two major benefits: 1) it engages students in their learning, and 2) it enhances their deeper learning outcomes. In this book, authors from universities in Australia, Canada, Italy, New Zealand, Romania, Turkey, the UK and the USA show how they have used active learning to engage their students and improve their deeper learning outcomes. Reading the book, you will gain insight into how the authors designed and carried out their teaching, using one of these eleven active learning methods:

authentic project-based learning; case-based learning; experience-based learning; flipped and peer learning; inquiry-based learning; learning space design; project-based learning; research-based learning; students as partners framework; technology-enhanced learning; and virtual exchange co-design.

The deeper learning outcomes documented by surveying or interviewing students include: a sense of belonging for improving retention; development of graduate attributes; digital pedagogy and professional skills; engaged and enhanced learning experiences; enhanced well-being; graduate employability; interpersonal and leadership skills; reflective practitioners; research communication competencies; and retention and employability. All the chapters in the book are underpinned by contemporary learning theories and methodologies on active learning. Yet, they are written in a direct and accessible language to inspire the reader to engage in teaching practices that enhance active learning in higher education.
