I learned that there was an enormous amount of literature on active learning. The books, journals, papers, and webpages were too numerous to count. The university education class was practical, so I was encouraged to experiment with active learning methods in my classes. It was very helpful to take this research-based education as it helped me to structure, vary and improve the courses. In fact, at one point I might have overdone the active learning part. I realized this when I saw the slightly desperate look in the face of one of the students when I announced yet another active learning method we were going to do. Clearly, when you want to improve your teaching it is important to find a balance and not to try too much at once.
