This material includes a variety of active learning strategies and techniques that can be used in any discipline.  What is especially helpful about this resource is that the techniques are not just listed, but offered with context and application, providing users a broad, but descriptive sense of how to use them and what learners might get from them.  Both new and seasoned faculty will walk away from this resource with ideas.  The general nature of the list of activities is a strength in that any content area can use and adapt these methods.
