OVERVIEW

In our Med-Ed track, we discuss all topics related to learning and teaching EM. One way to take a deep dive into a topic is through small group learning. In this brief soundbite, we'll share a few pearls to make small group sessions more engaging and memorable.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • In small groups, learners work together towards a common learning goal. This is a form of active learning as you engage with others in the group and it promotes team-based skills.
  • Small group learning can improve motivation, comprehension, and retention
  • To prepare: define your role, prepare key learning points, and familiarize yourself with the topic ahead of time.
  • When facilitating, consider the stage of the learner. You can also ask branch point/probing questions.
  • Team-based learning is one collaborative learning strategy
  • Keeping learners engaged is a challenge- enthusiasm is important!
  • Create a safe learning environment where participants feel free to ask questions
