Activity Led Learning

Course Overview

Activity-Led Learning is an approach to teaching in which the motivation for learning is provided by stimulating activity that engages students and creates challenge, relevance, integration, professional awareness and variety.  Learning is stimulated by a project, problem, scenario, case-study, enquiry, research question (or similar) in a class-room, in a laboratory, at work, or in any other educational context.  Activity-Led Learning is about providing students with a motivating and rewarding learning experience that will help to prepare them for professional working life (or initially postgraduate study) and will also be a personally fulfilling as well as challenging experience.
