Maximum: 10 Minutes of LectureMinimum: 2 Minutes of Collaboration5Research IndicatesLearning is optimized when students are actively engaged in the process. Research on instruction shows that most of us remember:10% of what we read20% of what we hear30% of what we see50% of what we both see and hear70% of what we have discussed with others80% of what we have experienced personally95% of what we teach someone else6Collaborative Activity How long have I been lecturing?
