Many instructors engage their students in active learning; however, many students may not be aware of what active learning is, and most have little idea of how to instigate it in formal and informal settings. By making a presentation involving active learning of their peers, students not only benefit from learning what they teach, they benefit from learning the skill of engaging audiences through active learning, and their classmates benefit from being exposed to a variety of innovative, creative teaching methods beyond just that of the instructor. This session showcases the value of student-led active-learning presentations in the classroom to stimulate critical thinking and enhance classroom discussions. The audience will also participate in a discussion of how to adapt this best learning practice to any discipline.
