Using Groups to Ensure Active Learning

3a: Using Groups to Ensure Active Learning

In this module, faculty learn to implement the essential components of effective active learning, including providing a rationale for the activity, promoting group interdependence, holding group members accountable, and collecting student feedback to identify strengths and areas for improving the activity. The module helps instructors implement three active learning techniques—Think-Pair-Share, Jigsaw, and Analytic Teams—depending on the learning objectives they have set for their class session or online module.

To satisfy the module requirements, faculty must implement one or more techniques, such as holding students accountable for their participation in group activities or implementing an appropriate active learning activity.
