In this jigsaw-based activity, students review protein separation methods.
The class is divided into 2 groups, with about 3-5 students per group. One group reviews polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE)-based protein separation, while the other group reviews liquid chromatography (LC)-based protein separation. Each group is responsible for looking up either PAGE or LC methods (4 methods per group), and each student within the group is responsible for learning all the material.
The class comes back together, and one student from each group is paired with a student from the opposite group. Pairs teach each other about the protein separation methods they reviewed.
The class regroups and the instructor goes over the material to make sure there are no misconceptions and to answer any student questions.
