Significant research exists around the advantages of active learning, particularly in comparison to less effective approaches such as “traditional lectures”. However, “active learning” is a very broad and nebulous term, and even if one does have an idea of where one is going, the practicalities of change (with issues related to finance, staffing, cultural roadblocks etc.) can be quite daunting. Theo will discuss a concrete example of what the School of Physics and Astronomy at Monash University has done, and is still going through, and discuss this in relation to the broader landscape of change at Monash, and examples elsewhere. Theo will also touch on issues surrounding the assessment of such change.
