The last two decades have witnessed a growing trend away from the traditional modes of instruction in physics courses at all levels, from high schools through universities. The reasons for this, as well as some commentary on several non-traditional styles of physics instruction, are presented in this paper. This article does not attempt to promote any one style over another because it is clear from numerous sources that almost any form of interactive learning produces improved conceptual understanding.
