Educators of medical/clinical curricula often deliver complex material in a format that does not allow the positive learning engagement recommended by cognitive researchers and theorists. Active learning pedagogies change the nature of learning, while improving knowledge gains and recall abilities. Students find the work more interesting and thereby put more effort into it. However, transforming pedagogical practice is difficult, especially since clinical faculty have not had much exposure to pedagogical theory or training. Starting with simple steps to change basic lecture formatting to more active learning methods is the best way to begin this practice. Practice with such methods may encourage further exploration and experimentation of a deeper understanding of active learning in medical education.
