An important theme in today's education and didactics is active learning. Want to know more about how the university and library can support teachers in using active learning didactic skills?

In active learning, students actively participate in the learning process, in contrast to more traditional passive instruction. Active learning is known to produce better study results and reduce dropout rates. The use of active learning didactics can be supported by using both flexible learning spaces and open digital learning materials.

Information specialist Marijn Post from WUR Library went on a study trip to the USA. She saw several examples of how university libraries are supporting active learning. Read her blog post on the Open Science blog to find out more about this topic and to discover what is available at the WUR in terms of facilities and open digital teaching materials.
