The TA Project has created many articles on teaching. A few of the more popular ones, as well as some relevant outside links, are below. A full list is available at our articles archive. Additionally resources for active learning are also listed.
The goal of active learning is to enhance students' ability to grasp the concepts and content of a course in a fashion that will result in greater retention of the material. While the pedagogical techniques and approaches can vary widely, all seek to engage students in a fashion that will foster both independent and collaborative learning opportunities.
