The use of Active Learning Strategies in Higher Education Institutions implies a continuous improvement process and a flexible mechanism for incorporating the lessons learnt toward a spiral methodology for the enhancement of teaching practices, content revision and curricula enhancement.

This study presents the main findings from Active Learning Strategies used in Greece and in Latvia. It is a preliminary analysis of a study in the middle of undertaking a greater survey worldwide in 15 countries. The research methodology is based on a qualitative research with structured online interviews of 30 academics and researchers in Greece and in Latvia for their perceptions about Active Learning Strategies in Higher Education.

The main contribution is the clustering of Active Learning Strategies in a two dimensional space related to interaction focus (Content - Collaboration) and Teaching Activities (10 different elements). This is an interesting framework for further elaboration since it poses critical questions about the support of each strategy in terms of content, resources, and context.
