Students working in groups has several advantages. Peer learning enhances overall learning because, when well-constructed, it encourages students to explain themselves, defend positions, contribute to joint-problem solving, as well as learn about people and positions different from themselves. creating these opportunities and assessing the success of group work can be cumbersome and difficult.
