HOW TO BUILD A BLENDED LEARNING COURSE

Active learning is a learner-centered approach to teaching that encourages student engagement in the classroom teaching-learning process. Active learning takes many forms, but in general active learning strategies are aimed at promoting active student participation in the learning environment through application of constructed knowledge, skills and attitudes.
