Teaching idea of the week: Studies have shown that active learning is much more effective than the traditional Socratic method or just lecturing. With active learning students retain more in their long-term memories, and they are better able to apply and manipulate the material. First-year classes should include problem-solving exercises at the conclusion of each unit.
