Active Learning In Large Classes

Active Learning In Large Classes

I. Gørtz (2011).  Active Learning In Large Classes. 3.

In this paper we present our ideas of how to use active learning in the lectures when teaching large classes (more than 50 students), and describe how we successfully have in a second semester course in the Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) and Bachelor of Science Engineering (BSc Eng) program at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Approximately 200 students are attending the lectures in the course.

The main idea is to use inductive, case-based learning, with many small exercises/ discussions during the lectures. We describe a framework for the lectures, that most lectures in the class were based on. The framework contains the conceive, design, and implement stage from the CDIO principle.
