About this session

The Active Learning Pathways Project (ALPP) used a systematic and methodical approach to implement projects on embedding a range of active learning approaches in a blended way in fifteen 1st and 2nd year courses across the seven Schools of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
