Small group teaching spans from small group activities within a lecture/ practical/ tutorial to a course designed for group work and group assessment.

This course will enable participants to:

- Develop group activities to increase activity and student interaction
- Identify the strengths and limitations of group tasks for both formative and summative
- Identify ways in which students can be supported in developing group skills and working
   effectively as a group
- Discuss planning considerations when introducing self and peer assessment.
