In the dynamic system that is a course, is there more than one role for students? As some of my classmates have pointed out, the primary role of the student is that of active learner, which, in my view, an inclusive term is. While learning, the student is listening, observing, researching, exploring, investigating, and discovering. Sometimes, the student is a leader, maybe assuming the role of teacher, and sometimes he or she is following, the teacher or another student.
