In Dr. Ron Carda’s large lecture, Packback gives students a place to interact with their peers
Forming study groups in a large class can be challenging for students. Dr. Ron Carda uses Packback to break his class of 218 into groups of 10 to 12 so students can ask their peers questions about the material and help their classmates better understand kinesiology concepts.

“[I’m] using Packback to create small study groups in a large lecture class. We have 240 or so students, and we broke this down into small study groups of 10 to 12 people. We send out review questions after each lecture and ask the students in each of these study groups to look at the questions and to ask the other members of their small study group to help them with understanding, in greater depth, some of the questions. And in turn, also help those who maybe are struggling with some of the other questions. So it’s really been an attempt to take our content that we’re presenting in class and having students work with that content in a small study group with the ultimate purpose of having the questions that they’re posing directly help them on their test performances downstream.”
