“Research has clearly demonstrated that the more college students become involved with the education process, the more they learn. Yet most faculty continue to use one of the most student passive forms of teaching: the lecture…. Lecturing is the method many faculty experienced most frequently as students. Some faculty feel that by lecturing, they have greater control over the content and amount of information dispensed. Once having conveyed this information, lecturers feel they have fulfilled their responsibility to impart its meaning to the students. But faced with low effectiveness, both students and academic leaders are becoming less satisfied with this approach to teaching. “The concept of active learning—that is, increasing students ’ involvement in the learning process—is an indispensable technique for increasing the effectiveness of teaching. ”
