Let us complete the puzzle together: a jigsaw cooperative learning trial on optical graduate course

Paper Abstract

Traditional lectures do hardly satisfy or benefit all of graduate students because of their diversity background, which might lead to inactive in the class, especially when the courses are professionally concentrated. Jigsaw cooperative learning (JCL), a student-centered learning method which engages all students and is beneficial in facilitating relationship-building, might be an alternative solution. A trial was made in an optical course “Optical Interferometric Measurement (OIM)”. However, the first trial we made is hardly counted as success. After thorough analysis on all factors that might cause the frustration, a new course plan is formed detailed. In this paper, we would like share our trials made in the course, both the unsuccessful one and the one work in progress.
