Study Groups   

Study groups come in a variety of formats but what they all have in common is that they are small, generally ranging in size from 6 to 30 participants. In many study groups, the leader will present material and lead a discussion afterward. In some, the discussion occurs throughout the class with the leader acting as moderator. In some, the leader and the group will take turns providing the material and leading the discussion.


Studies have found that one of the best ways to retain what one has learned in reading about a topic or listening to a lecture is to discuss it with others. In addition, discussion with a diverse group of other learners may bring new insights that would not occur otherwise.
