Methods of Teaching, Learning & Assessment

Workshop

a brief course emphasizing interaction and exchange of information among a number of participants

A workshop is a fundamentally interactive form of learning, where students work together in small discussion groups, usually on a specific set task.  A tutor will be present to advise and coordinate discussions but the emphasis is on students to produce original findings.

Workshops are popular in courses with a practical element where the subject matter itself can be explored in a hands-on environment, ie. music or art education.
