Active learning is a pedagogical approach that encourages active student participation in the classroom, with the goal of enhancing student learning. This presentation will focus on specific examples of active learning implementation in an undergraduate statistics course, designed to facilitate student engagement and thinking at each level of Bloom's Taxonomy (remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, creating). Activities presented range in duration from two minutes to 30 minutes, and adaptations for differing class sizes will be discussed.
