Professor Arthur Bahr releases Arthurian Literature and Old English classes on MIT Open Courseware: 21L.460 Medieval Literature: Legends of Arthur and 21L.705 Major Authors: Old English and Beowulf. In an article, “Actively Engaged Students: The Holy Grail of Teaching,” on Open Matters, Joe Pickett writes: “One of the most poorly kept secrets among people who advocate flipping the classroom in the sciences and engaging students in active learning is that the humanities have been flipping the classroom and practicing active learning for decades. So it’s not an exaggeration to say that the sciences have been taking a lesson from the humanities in recent years.”   21l-460
