Abstract: Almighty created human beings with countless endeavors among that learning plays a vigorous role. Learning can be systematized set of principles which acquires, stores, disseminates, process or understand and recall the various knowledge domains. Quenching the thirst of knowledge is conceivable by either Traditional Learning or Active Learning and both strategies or mechanisms. In this study we discuss on how Traditional Learning strategies continuous from years to gather in importing the knowledge by using chalk and board with numerous pros and cons. This learning focuses on memorization techniques but partially succeed in developing creative thinking strategies. Other limitation of this traditional teaching is due to participation of “only teacher interaction with the student “could not able to achieve outcome of the entire courses. To create interactive environment between the teacher and student we focus on active learning strategies. Active learning is super engaged strategy for cultivating creating thinking power of learners. This strategy is ongoing best suited and result oriented for mainly experimental and applied courses. In this paper we discuss how effective these strategies could be a productive means of achieving course outcomes for modern technological courses. Active Learning strategies will bridge the gap between traditional teaching strategies and modern technological courses outcomes. The various Active Learning strategies which are encountered are perception learning (listening & speaking), Thinking & Reasoning, Class room discussions, Think pair & share; Problem based learning, Solution Based Learning, Shared brain storming and Experimental learning. These strategies can be applied to technological, management, Engineering, medical courses which exhibit the active learning strategies.
