Research findings indicate that active learning fosters an environment where learners feel comfortable, engaged, and motivated, as well as lead to genuine retention of information. Peer-to-peer interaction is an intrinsic component for a comprehensive application of active learning. In this workshop, participants will explore the importance of peer-to-peer interaction in active learning and discuss techniques for its implementation. Through cross-disciplinary discussions, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities of peer-to-peer interaction in different contexts. By the end of the workshop, they will be equipped with discipline-specific techniques that can enhance learning outcomes and student engagement.
