Active Learning
Limited Capacity seats available

Cambridge International Examinations uses ‘active learning’ to describe a classroom approach which acknowledges that learners are active in the learning process, building knowledge and understanding in response to learning opportunities provided by their teacher. This contrasts with a model of instruction whereby knowledge is imparted or transmitted from the teacher to students. For Cambridge, active learning means that learners take increasing responsibility for their learning, and that teachers are enablers and activators of learning, rather than lecturers or deliverers of ideas.

The presentation will explain the theoretical concepts and research evidence for active learning. We will look at examples of what it means in the classroom and examine how the Cambridge curriculum supports active learning. Finally we will consider challenges to the implementation of active learning and how the approach may need to be adapted in the Indonesian context.
