Encouraging Effective Group Work: The pedagogical challenges involved in designing a staff workshop

Pamplin, M. (2012). Encouraging Effective Group Work: The pedagogical challenges involved in designing a staff workshop. Learning at City Journal, 2(1), pp. 11-17.

Abstract

This paper discusses two main pedagogical challenges involved in designing a workshop for staff in the Schools of Arts and Social Sciences. While it may be simple to prepare a linear, teacher-driven presentation which can be delivered to an audience of any size, this misses the opportunity to design a flexible learning experience in which the participants play an active role. The design for the workshop, which is based on the pedagogical theories of facilitative teaching (Biggs 1999) and approaches to learning (Marton and Säljö 1984), is described, and several strategies for encouraging deep learning are detailed.
