It was great to here the voice of a facilitator; it may be even better to hear the opinion or perspective of one or two people in the group about the feelings and the experience of learning from each other and not from a teacher.
I am the Self-Reliance Assistant from the Boynton Beach Stake. I have been an adult educator for 5 years, including institutions such as Florida Atlantic University, Broward College and Palm Beach Lakes Community High School.
I think interactive learning is the most beneficial to people in general. When students are proactive, they feel more involved and committed to the things that they are learning. They also feel a sense of belonging.
