Target Audience: Staff who are involved in learning and teaching within the university

 Jigsaw learning is a form of co-operative learning that can be used in the classroom to encourage students to learn from each other in a way that also encourages individuals to take responsibility for their assigned work. For face-to-face delivery the method could be used in smaller classes (up to around 30 students) and using the groups/groupings function on MyPlace it is easily scalable for large classes using blended/online delivery modes.

This session allows staff an opportunity to explore ways in which they might use Jigsaw learning and reflect on how this might benefit their students.

Case studies will be presented so that experiences can be shared and ongoing support networks established.

Through participating in this workshop participants will be able to,

  • Understand key elements of Jigsaw Learning;

  • Explore how the technique might apply to their own disciplinary context; and

  • Design Jigsaw Learning teaching activities suitable for either face-to-face or blended/online delivery
