Active and group learning in the computer architecture classroom
Proceedings of the 2000 Workshop on Computer Architecture Education, WCAE 2000
Lecture is the traditional instructional format in Computer Science (and in most disciplines) at the college level. However, research studies have shown what we all suspect - lecture is not very effective. Students retain only a small fraction of the material covered, attendance only has a marginal effect on performance, and learning via lecture is independent of the lecturer's quality. This paper presents an alternative to the lecture format, i.e., active and group learning. Application of active and group learning to teaching Computer Architecture within a Computer Science program is described.
