The humanities classroom has long been moving away from the “chalk and talk” method of teaching. But do all discussion-based seminars include active learning? In this Learn@Lunch, Bryan Sinche and Erin Striff presented methods of active learning such as flipping the humanities classroom and using student-generated media to encourage critical and creative thinking. They also showed how educational technologies in or out of the classroom are most effective when combined with collaborative, hands-on learning, encouraging students to analyze and interpret the information they’ve learned.
