Active Learning

11. Active Learning--Students are taught how to learn throughout their lives, rather than being simply asked to memorize the content of each course.

Again, the Perspectives courses are the closest that the General Education curriculum comes to requiring active learning, although students need to work actively at the process in writing courses. Of course, active learning is essential in laboratory courses. This barrier is difficultto overcome; many students arrive with substantive reluctance to participate in classes. But the General Education curriculum does address this concept through the "curiosity" goal.
