Active Learning in Large Groups: A Team Sport
There is an overlap between small group and large group teaching strategies. Small groups, by their nature, tend to be interactive, using problems or cases to frame discussion among peers and a faculty facilitator. Large groups can become passive and focus on PowerPoint delivery of content. The faculty presenter can get caught up in the role of “sage on the stage” losing interactivity with the audience.
Goal: This session will prepare participants with practical knowledge and experience to confidently and actively educate learners.
