Want to learn more about active learning? Check out this reading list. In preparation for my Fulbright application to Norway for an active learning research project, I prepared this bibliography last year. It includes some Norwegian research on the topic. I didn’t get that postdoctoral Fulbright but will try again next year for something else. It took a lot of time preparing the application, and my references and potential hosting institution were so helpful in the process. Special thanks to Dr. Rob Gray for serving as an intermediator in the application process! You can read about his work below. If you have any seminal articles on active learning, please leave the citation in the comments section for inclusion. See my blog post for designing active learning in distance education.
