ABSTRACT
In contrast to the student teams used for larger and longer
group projects, in-class groups are often ephemeral, lasting
for only a few minutes or until the end of the period. Because
of this, little effort is put into forming these groups, usually
letting the students self-select their teams. This paper argues
that greater student interaction and learning can take place
by using instructor-selected teams. Two group formation
techniques for in-class group work, the latent jigsaw method
and grouping students by Felder-Silverman learning styles,
are presented. Observations from a classroom deployment of
these techniques are also described.
