Abstract

Considering recent claims that groups are important to teaching and learning, the authors examine the differences between groups and collections of people to see how one might create learning groups when designing learning and instruction. Based on literature in the fields of group dynamics and education, characteristics of groups are listed and explored. Strategies for creating learning groups are synthesized. Implications for practice are discussed.
