Charles Bonwell's Active Learning Site This site supports the scholarship of teaching by providing research based resources designed to help faculty use active learning successfully in college and university classrooms. Active learning involves putting our students in situations which compel them to read, speak, listen, think deeply, and write. Active learning puts the responsibility of organizing what is to be learned in the hands of the learners themselves, and ideally lends itself to a more diverse range of learning styles.
Some Thoughts About Webquests A Webquest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which some or all of the information that learners interact with comes from resources on the internet, optionally supplemented with videoconferencing. This site provides exhaustive information on all aspects of WebQuests, and the relationship with traditional active learning.
and Communication For Active Learning The project develops interactive,
hypertext based study material for courses in information systems design
and databases. The project also develops a methodology for integrating
this type of study material in coursework.
