The Chronicle of Higher Education recently published an article highlighting the improvement active learning can have on student outcomes versus traditional lecture. In the study described, the incorporation of active learning techniques in the classroom led to a 12-point improvement over traditional lecture courses in terms of the number of students who passed the course (The Chronicle, 2014).
