## Pedagogy in Action (NSDL Collection)

The Pedagogy in Action collection provides educator-focused introductions to a range of teaching methods that promote engaged learning.It combines what, why and how information about the pedagogies with descriptions of real-world teaching activities that exemplify each method. The goal of the Pedagogic Service is encourage educators to reflect critically on their own teaching practices and to support them in exploring new pedagogies.
