Active Learning Comparison

There is little doubt that active learning is more effective than traditional lecturing, but which active learning approach best promotes student engagement and learning?

In this study we compare 3 commonly used active learning approaches: verbal questioning, clickers, and worksheets. Students completed an engagement survey immediately following implementation and several multiple choice and short answer assessment questions on the final exam.
