In spite of considerable evidence of the effectiveness of active learning and other contemporary teaching methods, barriers to adoption of these methods, such as possible student resistance, continue to exist. This study addresses student resistance by analyzing data from 1,051 students who completed our Student Response to Instructional Practices (StRIP) instrument in 18 engineering courses where active learning was implemented. Through descriptive statistics, correlational analyses, and hierarchical linear regression modeling, we demonstrate that students' perceptions of their instructors' use of explanation and facilitation strategies can have a significant impact on student resistance. This study provides a more complete picture of the relative efficacy of these strategies to reduce resistance and confirms that students' perceptions of their instructors' use of these strategies can influence both how students engage with active learning and how students evaluate the course and instructor. We provide evidence-based advice for both new and experienced instructors to reduce student resistance to active learning and other contemporary teaching methods.
