“Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I
understand.” - 不聞不若聞之,聞之不若見之,見之不若知之,知之不若行之;學至於行
之而止矣。(pinyin: Bù wén bù ruò wén zhī, wén zhī bù ruò jiàn zhī, jiàn zhī bù ruò zhīzhī, zhīzhī
bù ruò xíng zhī; xué zhìyú xíng zhī ér zhǐ yǐ.) 荀子
Active Learning
Teaching techniques where students do
more than simply listen to a lecture.
Students are DOING something including
discovering, processing, and applying
information.
