Presentation at the HEA-funded workshop 'Activity or action? Theory and evidence to support the use of active learning pedagogies in Business Management'.
Based on a consideration of the constructivist underpinnings of Active Learning (AL) pedagogies and evidence from tutors who have incorporated group projects, business simulations and Problem-Based-Learning (PBL) into their courses, this workshop will support the notion that Active Learning pedagogies provide a radical and effective departure from traditional approaches.
