HOW TO BECOME AN ACTIVE LEARNER (Zayapragassarazan, 2014). Passive vs. Active Learning The passive learner allows information to be brought to them. They are often described as empty cups that are waiting to be filled by information. Passive learners simply take in information without thinking about what they can do with it. The active learner seeks out information and engages with it. They have an intention to learn, and choose to participate in the learning process by reaching towards new information. They can be described as a trees seeking out new information with their branches. Active learners have beens hown to have improved learning outcomes compared to passive learners (Michael, Carter & Varella, 2009) PASSIVE LEARNING ACTIVE LEARNING Listening to a lecture Asking questions and participating in discussions during a lecture Reading a textbook Highlighting, taking notes, doing practice questions while reading a textbook Watching an experiment Doing an experiment Reading over your notes Reading over notes while highlighting key words, predicting test questions, thinking of questions to ask next class Created by Joey Faria (Learning Resources Intern), Isabella Scurfield (Learning Resources Intern) & Patricia Diaz del Castillo (Learning Resources Advisor) Office for Students with Disabilities, McGill University (2016) HOW TO BECOME AN ACTIVE LEARNER 1.
