Making small-group teaching work

Small-group learning is really important for students, but often gets eclipsed in the literature by the more ‘public’ aspect of large-group lectures. I’ve written lots about both, in the ‘Lecturer’s Toolkit’ (2006 and 2015) and in ‘Making Learning Happen’ (2014). I often use Chapter 4 of the Toolkit as a handout in my workshops on small-group learning, and this particular chapter remains largely unchanged in the 2015 edition, so I am putting the Chapter up as a download here small-group-handout-toolkit.docx (2970 downloads) , not least as a response to Twitter requests for help regarding small-group teaching. I hope you find it useful.
