INTEGRATING ACTIVE LEARNING METHODS DURING UNIVERSITY LECTURES
AbstractThis article explores the possibilities of faculty members to reconsider the format of the traditional lecture by integrating active learning methods for students. The format of an interactive lecture is promoted when the teacherâ€™s activities alternate with the studentsâ€™. Our goal was to select examples of active learning methods that can be integrated during university lectures in different academic disciplines with the continued effort and support of the teachers. Examples applying to the three moments of the lecture: beginning, middle, and end were considered. As most of these methods were demonstrated in a pedagogical workshop for faculty members, some of their opinions about these methods are also shared in this article.
