Are you looking for a new form of active learning?  Or do you want support for a form that you are already doing?  Do you want your students to be more engaged, accountable, and responsible for their own learning?  Let’s talk about the Jigsaw method for cooperative learning. 


Cooperative learning usually involves small groups of students who contribute to each other's learning. (I have primarily used this particular method for students on rotations).  Student interactions lead to opportunities for improving communication skills, and problem-solving.The jigsaw method involves dividing up parts of the assignment or problem (jigsaw pieces) and then assigning groups of students to become “experts” in one area of the problem.  Students learn the new material then teach their knowledge to peers. Everyone then is able to see the final completed puzzle with all of the unique pieces discussed.  


Benefits of the jigsaw method: 

-peer teaching and learning 

-facilitating small group discussion 

-active engagement 

-practically, as a preceptor, you do not have to plan the entire discussion 

-students are held responsible and accountable for their individual section of the material 

-SOTL studies indicate that students benefit from this method, whether the learner or the expert
