Active and Collaborative Learning

Active and Collaborative Learning is strategically aligned with the University's Education and Student Strategy Hub entitled 'Research and Practice Informed Education'.

Active learning is a method whereby students participate in activities that promote synthesis, analysis and reflection on course content, encouraging students to take ownership of their learning. It can involve students working either individually on tasks to clarify and internalise their understanding of course content or with others on collaborative activities that motivate each others learning and reflect on different peer perspectives.

Outlined in this section are suggestions for pedagogical activities to run for large and small group teaching, spaces that you can use, including City’s new Learning Spaces and technologies you can use. If you would like some advice or guidance on the Learning Spaces or any of the content on this page, please contact leadinfo@city.ac.uk

Pedagogy, Space and Technology
