Abstract

An active learning process has the potential to provide educational benefits above-and-beyond what they might receive from more traditional, passive approaches.  The Socratic Method is a unique approach to passive learning that facilitates critical thinking, open-mindedness, and teamwork.  By imposing a series of guided questions to students, an instructor can challenge students to think for themselves, learn from their mistakes, and give them the necessary tools they will need to assess situations they will encounter in both their professional and personal lives.
