Active learning is an instructional approach to engage students in the learning process, a teaching strategy that promotes learner autonomy. It is a form of student-centred learning that moves learners from receiving knowledge to producing knowledge. Creating an active learning classroom environment involves setting up an authentic context for learning. My talk highlights the use of poster presentations in a writing class to create an active learning classroom environment. I will share my students’ feedback on the activity as well as my reflections on the place of poster sessions in a writing curriculum, including the implications that an active learning classroom has for student and teacher roles.
