After the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Summarize evidence-based practices for facilitation of small group learning.
  2. Describe strategies for facilitating interprofessional small group learning.
  3. Discuss special considerations when facilitating synchronous interprofessional small group learning that includes distance learners.
