To consider the pros and cons of group working
To consider the pros and cons of group working.
Either closely observe students working in groups in two sessions, or reflect on group work activities that you have initiated over the last week. Use these questions as a starting point for your reflections:
- What were the successful elements of the group work?
- What was less successful?
- Can you identify why a particular group activity was successful or unsuccessful?
- What would you do differently next time?
How had the students been prepared for the group work? Would a different form of preparation have enhanced the group work?
