Three topics of Forensic Medicine were taught by jigsaw, think-pair-share and team project to three equal number groups of students and they were subjected to pre and post intervention questionnaire. Results: There was significance increase in mean post test score for all the innovative teaching methods for all topics. There was no significance difference in mean post test scores of all three innovative teaching methods which indicated that all three innovative teaching methods were effective and good to practice. Conclusion: Instead of didactic lecture, interactive lecture with innovative methods like think-pair-share, team project, and jigsaw is very helpful and essential for effective teaching and learning.
