The use of small group methods in higher education.

Mande, Wilson Muyinda

Abstract:
This paper discusses the use of small group methods in teaching and learning in higher education. Small group methods have been in use for a very long time, older than the school system and higher education itself.  The methods are defined and discussed using the Socratic method to demonstrate how small group methods can be used in teaching. The advantages and challenges are identified and examined. The paper concludes with suggestions that small group methods should be used because they fulfil educative purposes.
