Activity-led Learning

This Activity-Led Learning Applied Research Group (ALLARG) acts as a forum and a focus for activity-led learning pedagogic research. Its areas of interest include Activity-led learning pedagogy and curricula, physical and virtual learning spaces for ALL, and evaluation of the effectiveness of ALL.

Activity-Led Learning (ALL) is a pedagogy in which the motivation for learning is provided by stimulating activity that engages and enthuses students and creates challenge, relevance, integration, professional awareness and variety. This is a pedagogy, and a learning philosophy, designed to produce graduates who have:

  • Confidence in their ability
  • Capability to achieve
  • Capacity to reflect, innovate and renew.

ALLARG is hosted within the Faculty of Engineering and Computing at Coventry University a large, multi-disciplinary faculty which brings together the work of several decades of problem based learning (PBL), project led learning, and industrially focused learning in engineering and computing.

Research

ALLARG uses research findings to improve learning and teaching practice; making a major contribution to enhancing the student learning experience within the Faculty and more widely, nationally and internationally. Members of the group undertake pedagogic research in:

  • Activity-led learning - pedagogy and curricula
  • Learning spaces for activity-led learning
  • Learning technologies for activity-led learning
  • Evaluation of effectiveness of activity-led learning
