Why Active Student Participation?
  • Students gain a deeper understanding of the subject and train general skills such as, collaborating with peers and leading groups;
  • A more active role in their own and 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
