Identify the "Big Idea"

Ask each student to share with the group what he or she thought was the most important concept, idea or new information they learned during a particular lecture or even a session. “If you could only take one thing from the information present, what would it be?” Ask each student to offer a different “take home” concept/idea.

Students often feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information they have to deal with and this technique helps them identify and organize the information presented.
