The Library guide, Library Resources for Active Learning is aimed at academic staff, interested in accessing and evaluating a range of recommended resources for the development of learner-centred active learning initiatives in their classrooms and beyond. The guide aligns with the Library’s overall teaching and learning strategy, which incorporates critical thinking, and is based on the principles of information literacy - ‘a set of skills and abilities which everyone needs to undertake information related tasks; for instance, how to discover, access, interpret, analyse, manage, create, communicate, store and share information’ (CILIP, 2018). Drawing on The Compendium of Active Learning: strategies for student engagement, Vol. 1 (Ryan, 2021), this guide contains a definition of active learning, and looks at some examples of educational theories, methods, and frameworks in terms of putting active learning into practice. The main focus of the guide is on providing listings of national and international resources for active learning enthusiasts and practitioners involved in teaching and assessment in further and higher education. Links to the following types of materials are provided: • Books; • eBooks; • Online journals; • Websites • TED Talks.
