You can Think-PairShare as an activity during a lecture, workshop, tutorial or even as an online learning activity. Providing a quick focused way for students to share ideas this technique can be used to gauge conceptual understanding, crucially analyse information and draw conclusions. You could being this process by asking a question and then giving students time to individually think about their answers. After a short time students can pair up to discuss their answers. This discussion can then be expanded to the whole class as students share their insights and ideas.
The instructor can then use these insights to further consolidate concepts should scholarly reinforcement be required.
