The article considers the interactive method of small groups for work at the Technical University, which increases the effectiveness of the learning process. The authors considered the necessary conditions and rules for conducting a lesson, using group work, to obtain a positive result at all stages of the lesson: choosing a topic, dividing into small groups, issuing instructions for completing a task, presenting the result of the work and grading. The authors concluded that this type of training covers the entire audience, activates passive students in individual work, due to group solidarity. Working in groups, in the process of making a common decision, improves interpersonal communication in the team, developing the ability of students to actively listen, and requires the teacher to use all his pedagogical abilities both in preparation and in conducting the lesson.
