The importance of Group Work in Science

Group Work

Research has shown that working in groups improves the quality of childrens conceptual grasp and decision making ability. Both of these are an important part of science, yet it is common to see group work in science simply as a way to cope with limited resources. Teachers need to make sure they are using every opportunity to improve the learning in their setting, and group work is fantastic way to do it!

In this course we examine some of the common mistakes encountered when employing group work during a science lesson and how these can be avoided. By the end of the sessions staff should be confident to use working in groups to its best advantage.
