Effectiveness Of Jigsaw Technique Of Interactive Learning In Physiology For I MBBS Students
Effectiveness of Jigsaw technique
Background: Jigsaw technique is method of collaborative and cooperative learning where students learn and teach to each other. Aim and objective was to introduce Jigsaw technique in teaching Physiology and to assess its effectiveness and perception of students. Method: Pretest was conducted. Students were divided in two groups T and J. First group T was taught by traditional lecture and Group J learned by Jigsaw technique followed by posttest. Next day crossover of groups was done and same procedure was repeated for another topic. Feedback was collected. Result: On comparing means of Pretest and Posttest scores (n=77) statistically significant (p=0.00) increase in score in both Traditional and Jigsaw method was observed. On comparing difference between two groups (T and J) increase in score of Jigsaw method was statistically significant (p=0.000) than that for Traditional method. Students and Faculty enjoyed the learning and recommended this technique. Conclusion: : Jigsaw technique is effective and enjoyable method of interactive learning. It shall be implemented for teaching. [Pande S, Natl J Integr Res Med, 2019; 10(6):41-45]
