The Influence of Discussion Groups in a Case-based Learning Environment


Educational Technology Research and Development Volume 49, Number 3, ISSN 1042-1629


Examines the role of discussion groups in a case-based environment. College students completed two cases individually or in small discussion groups. Overall, participants in groups liked their method significantly better than those who worked alone, felt they learned more working in a group than they would have working alone, and expressed a preference for working in a group.
