Using active learning does not necessarily require you to completely change the way you teach. If you have found success in lecturing, there are several techniques that you can use to enhance your lecture that will not require too much planning, but will improve student engagement and promote learning.
One of the easiest ways to start using active learning is to intersperse small, meaningful activities into your lectures to make your lecture more interactive.
In the diagrams below, the timelines show that the main pedagogical approach is lecturing, but specific active learning strategies have been interspersed throughout the lecture to help students consolidate content and increase engagement. These are only some examples of the way you can make your lectures more active, dynamic, and engaging.
