The article discusses research on interactive teaching methods. It references a study led by Louis Deslauriers, doctoral researcher at the University of British Columbia in Canada published in the journal "Science." It discusses findings on learning experiences of students, comparing results from teaching based on traditional lecture and on interactive activities founded on research in cognitive psychology and physics education.
