Abstract

It is often argued that students who take an ‘active’ approach to learning, and process information at a relatively ‘deep’ level, learn more effectively, and retain
information for longer, than those who take a ‘passive’, ‘shallow’ approach. Some traditional approaches to lecturing, however, tend to encourage the latter approach, as does an emphasis on assessment and passing exams, coupled with a heavy workload. An approach to teaching at advanced undergraduate level
using group discussion workshops is described, which both encourages students to take an active role in learning, and, at the same time, allays anxieties over assessment by providing them with well-organised revision material.
