Abstract

Introduction: Identifying a slow learner and involving him/her in an active learning process like pair and
share has shown to build a meaningful understanding of subject and also beneficial for long term learning
and self directed learning skills. The objective of the study was to analyze the effects and impact of an
innovative pair and share learning strategy on academic performance of slow learners.
Materials and Methods: 42 Slow learners in Department of Physiology were identified with a score of
<35> which included internal discussion & presenting their pair’s topic in front of whole group. Activity included
pretest, posttest and feedback questionnaire.
Results: Statistical analyses were done using Student’s paired t test and SPSS. There was slight
improvement in the pretest and posttest scores but was not statistically significant. Majority of the students
were satisfied and some were very satisfies with this type of learning strategy. Many of the students
expressed that this method of learning module was enjoyable, improved their knowledge, helped them
understand and remember specific information effectively and provided positive feedback because of peer
feedback.
Conclusion: The innovative pair and share learning strategy will facilitate slow learners to develop valuable
learning skills for lifelong and more efforts need to be geared towards popularizing this module for
improving productivity.
