Term Definition
active learning

an approach which involves the learner doing something more than simply passively receiving what is taught. Cognitively it may involve some form of mental processing aimed at an output of some sort but more usually it refers to an actual practical activity where something is performed made or worked on by making use of or creating the new learning.
