In my experience, when we teachers are interested in improving our teaching methods by using approaches shown experimentally to be effective, we generally think in terms of either active learning or cognitive science. But we could benefit by thinking these two schools of thought are part of a broader category, evidence-based learning. I propose to offer a definition of evidence-based learning, with an overview of how active learning, cognitive science, and other perspectives are part of a larger multidisciplinary approach. I will point the audience to some key sources for learning more about both the active learning and cognitive science approaches to the evolution of our teaching and learning methods.
