Active Student Participation
Students and teachers at Uppsala University are working in many ways to promote education and to take joint responsibility for learning. How can active student participation contribute to your learning as a student or as a teacher?
- Students gain a deeper understanding of the subject and train general skills such as, collaborating with their peers and leading groups;
- A more active role in their own and their fellow students' learning increases motivation, promotes meta-reflection about how to learn, and creates better cohesion in the student group;
- More active participation can also be seen as an exercise of democratic capacities and citizenship skills
