Many of the face-to-face classroom design considerations hold true for the online classroom. This third post will explore additional design considerations for active learning online. Once again, the design concepts are organized around the questions of who, what, when, where, and why. The goal is to provide key design concepts to consider before choosing the “right” active learning strategy.
How do you know that utilizing active learning strategies helped your learners achieve not only something, but they achieved something more?
This blog post is the second in a series about active learning course design. The first post provided an evidence-based perspective on how moving from a lecture paradigm design to an active learning design improves student learning. This second post explores how to design active learning for the face-to-face classroom.
