Working with Groups of Learners
Part of the SSSC Practice Learning Qualification suite of learning objects, this resource offers evidence for the belief that learning in groups is an effective use of 'teacher' and 'student' time and energy and it incorporates some practical suggestions for maximising the potential of learning groups.
There are general sections which aim to enhance understanding of what happens in group learning and what you, as the facilitator, might do to support and promote your learners in face-to-face or online groups. We explore the issues involved in group supervision in social work and offer two examples of this practice in Scotland. The learning object also includes signposts to wider reading for deeper consideration of the theory and practice of group learning.
