Interactive Journals can be used throughout the education process. They are an active learning tool that allows students to organize new material in a meaningful way that promotes long-term learning. Current literature supports that active learning will engage students. This presentation will demonstrate practical and effective ways to use an interactive journal in higher education with discussion of student feedback.
