As a teacher, would you like your students
to come to class well-prepared? Would like to see more interaction in your

lead to better academic outcomes. It is important to remember, however, that
engaging teaching methods vary greatly, and so might the academic outcomes they
lead to. (Chi
& Wylie, 2014; Freeman et al.,2014).
