Academic Evidence: Evidence derived primarily from research scientists in research facilities using scientific methods. For example, experiments and correlational studies.
Active Learning: The premise that learners must be actively engaged for learning to occur.
Application Practice: Assignments that ask learners to respond in ways they would respond on the job. Contrast with recall practice.
Asynchronous E-Learning: Computer learning environments in which individual learners study independently at their own pace usually in a self-study mode.
