Active learning as a meta-strategy of meaningful learning is
an essential ingredient for the effective learning of students
as it actively engages the students, enhances interactivity
and encourages them to acquire the knowledge with reason.
It can impact the way the students receive, process and
assimilate the information disseminated to them by utilizing
their cognitive skills of understanding, analyzing, evaluating
and creating, thereby constructing their own knowledge.
Thus in such a situation the role of teachers happens to
experience a profound transformation from being merely
the “disseminators of content” to “facilitators of learning”
which is rather easily said than done. In most of the cases it
is found that the teachers are unable to culminate into the
so called “facilitators of learning” as they need to finish the
bulky syllabus in a stipulated time.
