“If we compare other providers to DataCamp, they are polar opposites. Most learning providers are video-based, and lack that crucial interactivity needed to learn data skills. So for us, choosing DataCamp was a no-brainer.”

What is active learning?

Active learning involves learners actively engaging in the material they’re studying through exercises, problem solving, or applying information in modules to real-world examples. It requires the learner to actively apply their newly-acquired knowledge rather than passively reading or watching videos or lectures.

How does active learning help to build data skills?

Active learning helps build skills faster and more confidently because it’s activities engage learners in deeper learning and allows them to apply and transfer their knowledge more effectively. It also promotes higher order thinking skills such as analysis.

What are the benefits of active learning?

Active learning has been shown to engage learners more with the course material, build confidence in applying new knowledge and skills, and promote higher learning retention. According to Dale’s Cone of Experience, ‘learning by doing’ or active learning helps learners to retain at least 90% of the learning materials within a course. It also increases both engagement and learners’ motivation to learn through more active participation.
