Active Learning should be Interactive

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper focuses on the relevance of being interactive for effective communication as well as active learning. Teaching and learning are two way streets. Critical thinking plays an important role in receiving and sending information. However, it is equally imperative that the sent message is the received message for effective knowledge transfer. To bring various stakeholders together, it is important that they share the needs of each other. Rather than being offended by the differences that might exist for each group, they should focus on the means by which congruence could emerge and efficient and effective relationships could be established. It is important to consider the similarities and differences between the pure and social sciences. The case is made that interactive active learning methods will yield the best results in bridging the gap between and among heterogeneous human segments in social and professional settings. Common understanding of the unique information can shape our society better than letting the two parallel wings work independently. Several means have been discussed to unify in the diverse environment through effective communication.
