Abstract

The usual practice of group presentation is aimed at enhancing students' participation. Group learning culminating in a presentation of group endeavors has its own educational values. Yet in a whole-class teaching and learning environment, how the group presentation is incorporated in the flow of the course with limited lesson time is a challenge many instructors have to tackle. In this vein, a possible solution is to redefine the relationship between teaching and learning. The value of group learning is not limited to individual members of each group. Student groups work with the instructor to form a co-teaching group for a quality presentation to the whole class. Every student has the opportunity to teach in this associate manner. Group learning and mass teaching is thus integrated. Classroom interaction is enhanced.
