Generative Learning in Action helps to answer the question: which activities can students carry out to create meaningful learning?
Teachers can implement the eight strategies for generative learning set out in the work of Logan Fiorella and Richard Mayer in their seminal 2015 work, Learning as a Generative Activity: Eight Learning Strategies that Promote Learning. Professor Fiorella, now at University of Georgia, wrote the foreword to this clear, insightful book by British master teachers Mark and Zoe Enser.
At a time when a great deal of attention has been paid to teaching and learning from the perspective of effective instruction and the teacher, Generative Learning looks at the flip side of that coin and considers what is happening in the minds of the learner.
