And when we involve students in activities that lead them to discuss, question, clarify, and write about course content, we not only foster better retention of subject matter but help expand students' thinking abilities as well" (Myers and Jones, 1993, pp. xi-xii, in www.iub.edu/~teaching).

"Try to include activities that allow students to learn in a variety of modes. The more active involvement students have in the learning process (through discussions, question and answer sessions, group projects, problem sets, presentations, etc.), the more information they will retain and the more enjoyable they will find their learning experience in your course. Using an interactive teaching style may result in the following benefits for students:

students become active rather than passive participants in the learning process

students retain information longer

interactive techniques are democratic processes and thereby give students experience in collaborating and cooperating with others

problem-solving and critical-thinking skills are enhanced in discussion settings

some students may learn better in a group situation

self-esteem is enhanced by class participation

students are given the opportunity to clarify their beliefs and values

student motivation for future learning is increased" (www.iub.edu/~teaching)
