Abstract [en]

King (1993) in her often-cited work “From sage on the stage to guide on the side” describes the shift from the traditional classroom where professors lecture and students listen and take notes, towards classrooms where students are actively involved in processing information and relating it to their previous experience and knowledge and making sense of it. Students get involved and use their higher-level cognitive skills to analyze, synthesize and evaluate the information received rather than passively receiving and memorizing it. As emphasized by many authors, students’ active participation and engagement is critical for their deep learning and understanding.

The aim of this paper is to present several practical examples involving students in classes in Business Administration and Management, such as think-pair-share, experimental exercises, “send‑problem” exercises, gapped outlines of lectures, learning by teaching, but also an example of how to get students engaged in improving courses via the structured group feedback method.
