Small group learning has been highly researched and shown to improve learning, engagement, and connection with instructors and students. These key variables support student success and are particularly impactful for at-risk students. However, group learning can derail at many points and can be disappointing as well as frustrating due to very common pitfalls. The good news is that several well established straegies will counter even the most vexing group learning challenges! Embedding group learning into your course entails rethinking multiple components in order to maximize success. No matter what your level of experience is, explore how to increase effective use of small group learning. Part I will focus on embedding active learning into your course session using Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle and introduce the five principles of small group learning.
Participants in these workshops will receive the booklets, Active Learning: Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle and Small Group Learning and begin designing breakout groups, active learning class sessions, and a team project using the five core principles of collaborative learning. Future active learning classroom instructors are encouraged to attend.
