Facilitating an environment conducive to active learning is a fundamental teaching strategy to confer to learners a deep understanding of subject matter. This technique has been successfully applied to teach green chemistry in multiple environments (lecture theatres, classrooms, laboratories and online). This review outlines recent significant advances in embedding active learning within green chemistry teaching using a range of methodologies including course design, inquiry-based learning with a specific emphasis on practical developments, hands-on learning and online learning. Significant scope remains to develop more combinatorial active learning activities, particularly at the school level.
