Abstract

This article discusses a project which was funded by a small grant from the Subject Centre for Philosophical and Religious Studies from July 2010-June 2011. It begins by explaining the reasons for looking for a new teaching and learning design before outlining the technique used (the Jigsaw Classroom) in detail. It then shows how this technique was used in first year philosophy tutorials and discusses the results, including feedback from the tutor and students. It concludes with some general remarks about the success of this method and its transferability to other subject areas.
