Abstract

Active learning is a student-centered learning strategy. The main goal of this active learning study is to improve student attitude and their thinking, communication, leadership, and writing skills by actively engaging them during class time. Methods including group discussions, concept test, and muddiest points are utilized to involve all students in the class. Group discussions get students to interact with one another, opening up new ways of thinking and making collaborative efforts such as group projects more effective. Poll questions are posted every class. The trends seen by their responses demonstrate their understanding of class material and make them think about the lessons presented. This study also includes a system of continuous feedback, as a means of clarifying and refining course materials. All aspects of this research will help shape lesson plans and develop more active teaching methods to engage students for future semesters.
