Strong evidence in favour of Active Learning and 'Flipped' learning.

Theo Hughes (see earlier post) just gave an awesome (and disarmingly frank) talk about the active learning spaces in Monash Physics. Below are some of the references he used:
Hi David,
 I mentioned in my talk a meta-review of active learning. Perhaps everyone is very familiar with this article... but just in case, here is the link that might be useful to pass around PEG/PEN?
