AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations:  AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations Evaluation – PROS: + helps overcome the language problem + stimulates free discussion in smaller groups and mutual learning + positive and stimulating competition among groups + makes students reflective about their comprehension of the texts compared to that of others (within and among the groups) + contributes to building up knowledge on the subject and filling in “gaps” from individual reading and comprehension AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations:  AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations Evaluation – CONS: - depends on the make-up of the group ! Seminar leader to stimulate the formation of groups with diverse composition - allows for free-riding ! Seminar leader to monitor constantly the internal-group discussions - the construction of table is crucial ! Seminar leader to encourage revision of table headings when next groups are “stuck” AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations:  AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations Student reactions and feedback:  like it better than “classic” presentations  “shy” students feel freer in discussions within smaller groups  “helps create a general picture”  “makes you aware of how you read and grasp the content” AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations:  AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations General comment: Too content-specific Replication of the experience: Using the same general format (several smaller groups, working consecutively) with other readings (George, Cottam) AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations:  AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations Modification (seminar on George’s texts): step1. each group asks a question Step 2. passing sheets around (1to2, 2to3, etc.) Step 3. every group answers the question and asks another one - Steps 2 and 3 are repeated once or twice (depending on the number of groups) Step 4. After the last round each group in turn reads aloud and comments on the questions and answers on the sheet that ends up with her (relevance of the questions to the text, significance of raised issues, correctness and comprehensives of answers) AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations:  AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations Scan 1 / side a AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations:  AFP Workshop on Political Science and International Relations Scan 1 / side b
