Background of the study: Despite the advent of online and mobile technologies, teaching and learning in institutions of higher learning has not drastically changed in decades, Pedagogies often ardently remain the same. Making the teaching and learning strategies more students friendly has helped to retain student’s attention and instil in them the interest to learn and perform better.

Methods: Participants were selected by purposive sampling technique. The action plan of Jigsaw was carried out in the classroom. Post intervention knowledge, satisfaction and feedback of students were taken using Semi structured questionnaire and rating scale. Results: The calculated p value (13.21) was more than the table value (1.70) at 0.05 level of significance, hence research hypothesis was accepted. This shows that Jigsaw technique is an effective way of learning. Feedback analysis showed that student developed or improved various skills such as enhancing communication (92.86%), analytical ability (82.14%), motivation (92.86%), enhanced skills (96.43%), teamwork (96.43%), problem solving (89.29%), overcome shyness (92.86%), teaching skills (100%).Satisfaction index was highest (93.57) for item 1,emphasizing the fact that students are confident that the knowledge through thus activity could be applied in clinical practice and lowest (75.7) for item 2, indicating that the activity did not help much for in depth coverage of the topic. Conclusion: The findings of the study indicated that jigsaw–based cooperative learning method is effective wherein students were able to develop various soft skills along with knowledge acquisition
