  Abstract: Previous research findings have documented the positive impact of group interaction on student learning. Much of the previous work has focused on the use of group activities and assignments. However, it is equally important for students to develop the skills to make decisions individually, which suggests the necessity of individual activities and assignments in the learning space. I have integrated individual and group learning activities in the design of a three-stage learning sequence. The learning sequence involves two individual assignments and one group assignment. As a part of the assessment of this instructional strategy, the correlation between the sequence of the individual and group assignments and enhanced student learning will be evaluated. This presentation describes the learning activity sequence with some examples. In addition, preliminary results of the effects of variations in the sequence of group and individual activities on student learning is presented.
