AND FINALLY - ACTIVE LEARNING
Here is more on Active Learning from the Study Guides and Strategies webpage. While written for students, it defines Active Learning in a way we can certainly apply to our teaching : "Through it you can explore a set of learning experiences that can be more effective and interesting, and you can take more responsibility for your education. This is especially critical in an online environment where you may not even meet your teacher or fellow students. Begin by defining content (what to study) and establishing your objectives (what to learn). Next read! Do your research. Then build a foundation of activities that can help you learn, and communicate what you have learned. Some may not be interesting to you; some a nice fit with your preferred learning style(s)."
