University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

Led by:

Marieke Kruidering, PhD, Katherine Hyland, PhD, and Rupa Tuan, PhD

Much of clinical and classroom teaching takes place in small groups. A faculty member can use the skills for leading an effective discussion and encouraging active student participation in a variety of instructional formats including case studies, problem-based learning, and small group discussions. The session will begin with an introduction by the facilitator, who will describe the roles and expectations just as we would with learners in real life. A handout derived from Tools for Teaching will serve as the basis for the discussion.

During this session scholars will:

Participate in three groups and subsequent debriefings.
Interact with expert small group facilitators to address personal facilitation challenges.
Discuss and formulate successful strategies for creating, leading and guiding discussions, and for asking and responding to questions.
Practice leading a small group session during a hands-on group exercise.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

Discuss advantages and challenges of using small group discussions as an instructional strategy and the rationale that supports small group learning.
Identify characteristics of effective group discussions.
Describe the roles and responsibilities of a small group facilitator, including supporting antiracist and anti-oppression practices
Identify facilitator and learner behaviors that promote effective learning in a small group, and practice these behaviors to improve individual facilitation skills.
Describe solutions to specific challenges encountered in small group instruction.
