Intensive mode teaching involves students engaging in facilitated learning activities or classes intensively over longer in a day and over fewer days than are traditional in the discipline. At three universities, we interviewed students in their classes and in focus groups in engineering and accounting units taught with intensive and traditional modes to discover what helps and hinders their learning. Findings that educators can use include opportunities that arise from extended classes, and practices and environments that students reported to be important. Future phases of the project and how delegates can be involved will be outlined.
