Active Learning / Benefits of Using a Group Dynamics Approach and Flexible Seating Arrangements

I accomplish the encouragement of active learning into my courses by exploring and experimenting with flexible seatng arrangements and rotating group members.  In these sitautions, my role as the instructor is more like a facilitator.  In order to improve successful interaction, I keep moving, monitorng, and interacting students, all the while applying the principles of group dynamics, which might sometimes even include breaking ties and bottlenecks.  In other words, I go with the flow!  Keep things flowing!  These types of dynamics are very helpful in a career college environment.  There is much opportunity for using active learning techniques in the allied health programs as well as clinical nursing applications, because of the high emphasis on workplace readiness.
