J Nurs Educ. 1986 Jun;25(6):226-9.


Diminishing resources and increasing student enrollment in the basic and post-basic programs at the Faculty of Nursing, University of Alberta, have led to large teacher-student ratios in the area of classroom lectures. This article is a discussion about the issue of student involvement in the learning process where there may be 100 or more students in one class. The meaning of student involvement, factors which inhibit student involvement, and strategies to increase student involvement in a large classroom situation are addressed.
