Facilitating Small Group Learning: Tips for Successful Student Engagement

1:30 pm – 3:00 p.m., Friday, December 4, 2020, via Zoom

Small group, team-based learning is a critical component to the Eshelman School of Pharmacy curriculum. The curriculum maximizes interaction between student and professor, thus necessitating the need for trained facilitators to support student learning in small groups. During this program, we will identify, describe, and apply key skills that will support small group facilitation to ensure that all students have an opportunity to engage in thoughtful productive conversations. At the end of the program, participants will leave with strategies they can implement in their small groups.
