Abstract

This paper compares the impact of an active teaching approach and a passive teaching style on student cognitive outcomes. Through two sections of an introductory Management course, one part was taught in an active manner, with a variety of active learning exercises. The other was taught in a passive way, emphasizing daily lectures. Across the empirical study, we conclude that active learning can improved cognitive outcomes in class-specific materials.
