Diane Goodman‘s insight:

Diane Starke from  El Paso Community College has compiled a comprehensive online resource on Active Learning and it is jam-packed with numerous informative links related to the sub topics: definitions, discipline-specific strategies, how to adapt a lecture format, challenges and ‘roadblocks’, and related research (up until 2001).
