Large 'small' groups: their place in higher education

, : Large 'small' groups: their place in higher education. Medical Education 13(4): 242-246

Small group teaching in higher education appears to be an ideal worth aiming for. The review of the literature in this paper shows that factural information about the effectiveness of such teaching is far from prolific. In addition, what may be the most common form of small group, viz. the 'seminar', has received far less attention than the 'lecture' or 'tutorial'. Special attention is drawn to the relevance of the studies for medical education but the overall finding is that need for well designed evaluative research is urgent, particularly with regard to 'seminar' learning groups.
