Much teaching in health professions education now occurs in small groups. As a way to promote active learning and engagement, small groups foster both learning outcomes and community building for students. However, teaching in small groups (also known as tutorials) can be supported through the application of teaching strategies specific to small group contexts. In this series we will cover how to develop an effective small group session, as well as how to manage some of the common challenges. The series consists of three sessions: Managing Time and Disruptions; Developing Your Small Group Session/Tutorial; and Fostering Discussion and Engagement. Although participants are encouraged to attend all three workshops, workshops can be taken individually.

Learning Objectives

After completing this workshop you will be able to

•     Explain group functioning and how it impacts small groups/tutorials
•     Identify opportunities for teachable moments and capitalize on them
•     Use questions to foster discussion
•     Give in-the-moment feedback
