Evaluating Students' Perceptions of Active Learning Pedagogies

Dr Helen Kay, Tim Parker, Dr Anne Nortcliffe, Dr Oliver Lewis and Dr Dave Greenfield, Sheffield Hallam University

Active learning has been shown to be effective in improving student learning when compared to more traditional lecture-based methods (Prince, 2004; White, 2015) but the link between active learning and better student engagement is still uncertain. Student ‘resistance’ to active learning has been blamed for slow adoption and even discontinuation of this pedagogy (Prince et al. 2014; Finelli et al. 2014; Borrego et al. 2010).
This study surveyed 240 students on level 4 engineering and level 5 engineering management modules and was designed to explore students’ attitudes to active learning through SCALE-UP pedagogy. Existing survey scales (Nguyen et al. 2016; Entwistle et al. 2013) were used to explore relationships between students’ ‘perceived value and positivity’ towards active learning and their levels of ‘actual participation’ in SCALE-UP sessions.
