Implementing active learning techniques in teaching introductory physics courses creates a positive learning environment and is proving to promote better understanding of the concepts via in-depth discussion among peers with support from the instructor and teaching assistants. This talk focusses on the active learning methods adopted by me in teaching physics for pre-health students at the University of Virginia in Fall 2022. I will be presenting a model of the activities carried out during a 50-minute class session and will be discussing the outcome in terms of student involvement and learning.
