The Advantages of Active Learning

This is one of a series of videos in which Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics Steven Hall describes his take on the benefits and challenges of active learning, featuring footage from his classes. Here Professor Hall discusses how active learning recitations help him evaluate student learning, both one-on-one and as a group, over multiple time scales. The format ensures everyone is engaged and working on the problem, provides insight into each student's understanding, and enables Professor Hall to respond to the needs of both the class and individual students.

This video is part of the OCW Educator initiative, produced for the OCW course 16.06 Principles of Automatic Control (Fall 2012).
