In this article, Beverly A. Buncher offers suggestions for transitioning teachers into using active learning. She cites research indicating that providing a school wide infrastructure which supports teacher growth on an ongoing basis will get teachers to take the leap to research-based practice.


She writes:

"As this research shows, the use of peer visits, study teams and coaching can help a principal ease active learning (or any new instructional approach) into teachers' lives on a daily, ongoing basis. These elements form the core of a professional learning community for its staff, which, amongst other benefits, sees its teachers as professionals who are sources of guidance, strenth and expertise for each other."
