Using Collaborative Research Projects to Facilitate Active Learning in Methods Courses
Political Science and International Affairs
This article proposes facilitation of active learning in methods courses using collaborative survey research projects. Students form groups in which they develop and administer questionnaires that explore public attitudes and behaviors. Each step requires they apply key concepts toward completion of the project. Collaborative research project tasks are integral to achieving course objectives and engaging the broader academic community.
