Gallery Walksearch for term

in small groups students move around the room from station to station at set times and discuss questions or problems; can be used in the first class so that students meet each other and faculty can assess prior knowledge; for example, in an environmental ed course a teacher could post 3-5 questions about definitions of environmental education on separate sheets on paper taped as stations on the wall; groups of students pause at each station, discuss the question, write comments on the sheet, and go to the next question when a signal is given.
