i. In the ‘Main Group’, each individual has to answer the question (Students are unable to discuss or copy for answers as each of them has different question paper!).
ii. Proceed to ‘Peer Group’ (gathering students having the same question) Discussion starts, searching for the best answers and write them on white board.
iii. Later, back to ‘Main Group’, the ‘expert’ (for every particular question) explains the answer to the group. Then, ‘Main Group’ must visit every white board (for different questions/answers).
i. Some students tried to understand what they missed out during regular classes.
ii. Nurture students to be accountable towards their ‘Main Group’ (given the task to find the best answer).
iii. Students learn on how to discuss and explain the answers to others (As the saying goes, “The best way to learn is to teach”!).
iv. One student told me that he wants to practice speaking in English.
This event benefited me and students to recap all subjects during the 4 weeks of lectures and most importantly, they had FUNdamental of learning from this new method (the active learning).
